Cabrini’s spirit was at its peek Sat. Dec. 4 at the women’s and men’s basketball home opener. The women’s team playted first with a close game to Wesley, 55-63 with a win for Wesley.The women’s team dominated the game the first half but then fell to Wesley the second half.

Fans were on the edge of their seats the whole game while the Cavs defeated Wesley on its home court 69-57.

Halftime was show time for the cheerleaders and the dance team. The new cheerleading team showed off their new uniforms while sharing halftime with the dance team and its seasonal routine.

The cheerleading team made history as the first squad to take the court at halftime. With a combination of upbeat dance moves and traditional cheering the team was successful to get the audience’s attention and applause.

For the first time the dance team decided to surprise the spectators with a special Christmas dance. Coaches Alica and Kendall Neil came up with the idea since it was the only time the team would be performing before the holidays.

“We just thought it would be cute to keep the holiday spirit alive,” Neil said. With green, white and red ribbons in their hair, dancing along to ” My Only Wish (This Year)” by Britney Spears.

Mixtures of choreography gave the routine a unique and professionally look. The team learned the steps to this one-time performance in just two weeks.

The Rocket-style kick line was a highlight of the performance. “I think and hope the crowd enjoyed it. I think they liked the kick line! We all had fun being out there,” Neil said.

Don’t miss the next home game at the Dixon Center, Sat. Dec. 18 at 7 p.m against Washington College.
