JV cheerleaders to perform at Citrus Bowl


Four Madisonville junior varsity cheerleaders will perform at the Citrus Bowl pre-game show in Orlando on Jan. 1.

The teens — Madison Counsil, Emily Sanford, Cheyanne Snook and Alexis Underwood — will leave Dec. 27 for the drive to Florida. All JV cheerleaders were invited to participate, but because the school cannot contribute funds, the bill must be footed by the girls’ parents and contributors. The parents have created a GoFundMe account – which can be accessed at https://www.gofundme.com/citrusbowl – to raise money.

The girls will also get an opportunity to go to Disney World and do some sightseeing in the Sunshine State.

According to Alexis Underwood’s mother Tiffiny, the package is $899 for each cheerleader and $859 for adults. It does not include travel or lunches and dinners. They are hoping to raise at least $1,400 per student. They are seeking donations to fund the special event, which will be televised on ABC.
