Cheerleading isn’t traditionally thought of as a sport for guys,but two Sequoia HighSchool juniors found themselves loving thespirited group.This season,the Cherokees team took firstplace in the United Spirit Association HighSchool Nationals competition in the co-eddivision,which requires two or more guys tobe on the team. The competition,which hap-pened last month,was the icing on the cakefor two guys — 18-year-olds German Barajasand Lorenzo Bruni — who decided to givecheerleading a chance this year.“Cheering’s a family,”said Barajas. “I can’tlive without it. All the girls are like sisters.”Bruni,an exchange student from Italy,agreed. A gymnast,Bruni joined the team inthe fall in hopes of continuing to practice.Since joining,he said he formed strongerbonds,participated in a sport that doesn’t existin his home country and got a chance to prac-tice his English.Adding guys onto a squad often enhancesthe stunts. Last year,Sequoia’s squad had oneguy,not enough to move the team into the co-ed division. Barajas took that spot and hasenjoyed the challenges. When Bruni came on,the team entered a new division. Sequoia’scompetition squad is made up of membersfrom both the junior varsity and varsitysquads,said coach Stacy Morell. This year’sroutine was choreographed over the summer,before the squad knew they would be compet-ing in the co-ed division. As a result,it didn’treally highlight the boys,said Morell. Nowthe team is hoping to continue to grow thenumber of guys and become a stronger forcein the co-ed division,she said.Being that Barajas and Bruni were bothnew,neither knew what to expect when takingthe nationals stage in Southern California lastmonth. There was a team with seven guyswhich both boys mentioned intimidated them.But the win despite having fewer guysenlivened both juniors.“I’m excited for the whole team,saidBarajas.Bruni,who will be returning back to Italy,can’t continue on the team next year. Despitethat,he thinks more guys should give it a try.
