South Dearborn cheerleading coach, Lori Rinehart, is a proud cheer coach this week. She tells Eagle Country, "I'm extremely proud of the effort this team has been showing throughout the season. They truly are dedicated to the sport and we are thrilled to be ranked 5th in the state of Indiana in the Varsity Coed division!" 

Abby Fox, Switzerland County cheerleading coach, explains how excited she is for the girls and the future of the program by telling us, "As a team, our athletes-consisting of only nine girls- have matured in both skill and confidence. That combination gave us just what we needed to land among the top this year. I’m proud and excited to see what’s next for this squad and the future of Switzerland County Cheerleading."
