The huskie cheerleaders do more than just create school spirit, and cheer at the games.  They are responsible for fundraising for the cheer squad. The money that the team earns goes to help pay for competitions. The money also helps pay for the scholarships for the girls that can’t pay the cheer fee. The cheerleaders are currently selling spirit wear for their fundraiser.

Varsity cheerleader Alexa Hoops thinks the fundraiser is a good idea for a variety of reasons. But the opportunity to support the school both financially and with spirit is most notable.

“The clothes ship quickly. Then we can distribute them and then the students can wear them to support Reno at their games and meets,” Varsity cheerleader Alexa Hoops said.

“The school hasn’t really helped us out with advertising for this one. It’s basically self-marketing and I have just been sending texts and asking friends if they want anything.”

Fundraising is time consuming. However, with this sale the team notes it can be rewarding.

“It’s  nice to advertise and talk to my friends but beyond that it’s not really like I am begging all my classes, or trying to make the most money. I’ve sold currently twenty-two items already so I think I’m pretty set, I mean I would love to sell more and support the team but there’s only so many people who want to spend lots of  money on spirit gear,”  Hoops said.
