It’s no secret that the world of cheerleading brings people together from all walks of life. Last weekend, it brought together two very successful and well known programs for a good cause. The Oklahoma Outlaws Cheer and Tumble Gymnasium and the Plainview High School varsity cheer teams came together to host the annual showcase event for the Outlaws, which was held last Sunday at the Plainview Activity Center. The event was used as a fundraiser for the Love County Toys for Tots program, in which both squads managed to raise more than $1,500. Numerous Outlaws squads performed at the event as well as the Lady Indians cheerleaders. The squads included The OOC tiny, mini, youth 2, junior 2, junior 3, senior 3.2, senior elite, and special abilities teams performed along with the Plainview High School Cheerleaders. “Our cheerleaders had such an awesome time performing for their friends and family at Plainview,” Outlaws coach Ashton Adams said. “All of the athletes were outstanding and we’re so proud of their performances. I have to send out a huge thank you to Plainview High School for allowing us to use their facility and to have their cheerleaders take part in this event.” Adams added that she hopes this becomes an annual event in which more communities can benefit through their respective Toys for Tots programs. “This was an amazing way to kick off our competition season,” Adams said. “We are beyond blessed as a gym with wonderful kids and families, and we hope to continue making a giving back an important part of this program.”
