Proud cheer mom

I am sure I mentioned that Jen is now the JV  cheer leading coach at her old high school.
Or did I?
Let me give you the back story.
When Jen was in high school the cheer leading program was excellent.   The two teachers who coached were wonderful.  In the years since Jen graduated, the two hood coaches left, and the teachers who replaced them.  . . There were three different coaches in a four year period.
This year Maddie took over the varsity team.  Jen knows Maddie from high school, Maddie was a senior when Jen was a sophomore,  and Maddie was a captain of the varsity cheer team.
Maddie asked Jen and Kristen- another teammate and one of Jen's best friends- to take over JV.
When Jen was in high school there were three squads - varsity, JV and competition.   All of the varsity girls and? some of the JV girls were on competition.  
But our current coaching staff decided to eliminate a separate competition team and have varsity and JV both compete.
Jen and Kristen signed up for a rookie competition today.
There were 7 teams in their division.
They came in second!

Wow! You seem to be one proud Mama. :) I think it is very admirable that you are really supporting your daughter in all her endeavors. Do you have photos of her cheering and coaching? I think it would be great to see the source of a parent's great pride. :)
