About the Team
Our program is one that is based on the values of dedication, determination, and school spirit. Morris Catholic cheerleading is not just supporting the other sports teams of the school. It is a physically testing sport that pushes the girls/boys to stunt, tumble, and jump. Pushing the athletes bodies to achieve goals that they may not have thought they could reach.
The Morris Catholic Cheerleading team is not just a Fall sport, but a Winter sport as well. These athletes commit their time and energy into being two-sport athletes. The Varsity Competition team competes on an All State level, performing in front of hundreds of other teams and different panels of judges to try and achieve that first place gold. In years prior, Morris Catholic has won multiple first place titles around the state and will continue to reach the highest potential we can. In 2019, MCHS Competition Cheerleading took home a second place trophy at Reach the Beach Nationals in Ocean City, Maryland. The Non-Comp Winter team performs at basketball games and wrestling matches.
