We've got spirit, yes we do!

We've got spirit, how about you? 


The Bulldog cheerleaders support the football teams by building up fan enthusiasm during the games, promoting school spirit, encouraging the players throughout the year and serving as ambassadors for GWA.

Coach Moss says: "The varsity squad has a total of 13 seniors for 2017-2018! I am so lucky to have had a few of these girls since my first year at GWA. I have seen them grow into lovely ladies and leaders of our school. Our season kicked off with a bang on a winning streak. Our squads of JV and V took the field with pride and dedication to make this year great for all of our sports. " 

This year the squad taught lower school students how to be part of school spirit and participate in pep rallies and each morning of a GWA home game, the cheerleaders greet the parents and students of lower school carpool. These ladies help the little ones out of the car with a spirited smile and a GWA hug to begin their day.

Varsity cheer has also worked hard out of the school as well. In June they attended UCA camp for three days filled to the max with spirit and cheer elements that only the strong could survive. The girls won superior, gold ribbons in all of the events as well as the superior trophy for all around best squad. The MOST important trophy is the coveted UCA banana. This banana was awarded to GWA as the MOST Spirited squad at camp. In July, the varsity squad hosted a youth cheer camp with more than 40 girls in attendance.
