South Gate High School is no stranger to amazing tournament performances and the cheer team is no exception. The cheer team practices ruthlessly Monday through Friday with long distance running, perfecting and choreographing new stunts, all while simulating competition routines to achieve the best performances possible. They have started to take competitions by storm placing 1st in two major competitions in the past 2 months. The first competition was JAMZ and was held at Cal State Long Beach on December 8th. With momentum on their side, the cheer team then went on to compete and place 1st at SHARP which was held at Azusa University on January 12th. With their week-long practices, the cheer team is aiming to sharpen their routine for the JAMZ competition to be held in Las Vegas on February 22nd.
On Sunday February 3rd what everyone thought was going to be the most epic Super Bowl, it turned out to be a huge disappointment for most fans. What was supposed to be the two most dominant teams facing off in the Super Bowl, the combined point were sixteen points with the Patriots winning 13-3. The match-up did not live up to the expectations of either fans who wanted to see both teams compete viciously for the Lombardi trophy and set records. Both the Patriots and Rams were putting up thirty-plus points in the postseason but, failed to rise to the occasion. After Super Bowl fifty-three, Rams coach Sean McVay said “I want to congratulate the Patriots on their sixth Super Bowl win, second I was clearly out coached”. The Rams fan base believed the Rams played well that both teams were just equally matched with great spirits. Rams fanatics are hopeful that the Rams will be back next year.

exceptional performance in a major tournament.

This will be an exciting opportunity for the team as they represent South Gate high school nationally.
