For the fourth year in a row, the South Dearborn Knights cheer team has won the Rivertown Classic Championship. Normally, the cheer teams from South Dearborn, Lawrenceburg, Rising Sun, and Switzerland County would perform during the final night of the boys basketball tournament.

  1. South Dearborn - 225.6
  2. Lawrenceburg - 225.3
  3. Rising Sun - 218.5
  4. Switzerland County - 216.7

The contest was judged on dance and formations, cheers and jumps, tumbling, and stunts, tossing and pyramids. 

South Dearborn's competitive cheer team consists of Margo Arnsperger,  Izzy Bear, Cadence Denney, Taci Hughes, Emalee Ramsey, Macie Teke, Emma Traue, Shanna Tschaenn, Kayla Upton and Avery Wuestefeld. 

They are coached by Lori Rinehart, Lindsay Buerger, and Katie McLaughlin.
