Bobcat Cheer Squad Announces Tryout Date

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. - The Nationally-Ranked Georgia College & State University cheerleading squad and head coach Jimmy Redus would like to announce the team's fall tryouts, coming up later this week.

Open to both male and female students, the Bobcat cheerleading tryouts will be held Wednesday, Aug. 26 in the Centennial Center. The tryouts will begin at 5 p.m. and end at 7 p.m.

"We are looking for girls and guys who are not afraid of hard work and dedication, and are ready to help cheer on the GCSU Bobcats to victory throughout the 2009-2010 season," said Redus.  "While prior cheerleading skills are preferred, they are not a requirement."

For those with conflicts due to class schedule, please contact coach Redus to make other arrangements for tryouts. For more information, contact Julianna Stradley at julianna_stradley@ecats.gcsu.edu or coach Redus at james.redus@gcsu.edu.
