We've Got Spirit: The Life and Times of America's Greatest Cheerleading Team
They tear ligaments, blacken eyes, and crash headfirst into hard floors. They spend grueling hours at practice, drawing admiration and envy -- and sometimes, ridicule -- for their efforts. They've won nine national championships, and endured heartbreaking losses. And they do it -- almost always -- with a smile.
They are the Greenup County High School cheerleading team. ESPN viewers may know them from their televised competitions; in northeastern Kentucky, they qualify as full-fledged celebrities. And in this book, illustrated throughout with photographs, award-winning journalist James McElroy takes you into their world -- a whirlwind of handsprings and hollers, in which the traditional athletic virtues of strength, flexibility, and endurance are supplemented by spirit, and where a squad of unlikely teenage heroines is taking center court and raising a cheer for themselves.
