A Missouri high school cheerleading squad cast team loyalty aside for a greater cause when they noticed the opposing team had only one cheerleader at a basketball tournament on Jan. 10.
The cheer squad from Hardin-Central High School, Carrol Count decided to switch sides and join the cheerleader after they saw her alone while waiting for their next game.
Brenda Milligan, the mother of one of the Hardin-Central cheerleaders, told Fox4: “[The lone cheerleader] was embarrassed and scared, just like any of us would be if we had to cheer in front of a big crowd all alone.
“My daughter and her squad took the nerve and went out to cheer with her. They learned her cheers and were able to present them to the crowd in a short amount of time.”
