I had very high expectations, hoping that this would bring that end of separation, that this will be a cohesive group to join, and we’ll be happy. You always want to have that in the back of your mind. And it was my sophomore year, but we were just JV cheerleaders, so we just went to the little, small games and all of that. And that was really, we had a really good squad that year, because I knew most of the girls. Cheryl Williams and Michelle Taylor were the two cheerleaders, Black cheerleaders, on the varsity team. So they had paved the way for us. They were the very first ones. And so being JV was exactly up my alley. I enjoyed that.
