Approximately 70 junior cheer cheerleaders performed at Saturday’s varsity football game against Dana Hills on Saturday.   The cheerleaders rallied onto the field at halftime and performed beautifully in front of a large home audience.  The performance this year included a dance routine, with stunts and tumbling incorporated into the performance.  The young girls’ ages ranged from 5 to 13. Newport Harbor’s cheerleaders conducted a junior cheer camp clinic in August for four days.

Wearing a brown halter top with matching beads lining her neck, one Costa Mesa student makes her turn at the end of the runway in silver high heels. Another shows off her sparkling jeweled brown jacket as she struts in front of onlookers. Cheerleaders know how to play to a crowd. Which is part of the reason three cheerleading squads from Orange County schools, including Costa Mesa High School, were chosen to be the models for a charity fashion show at God’s and Heros in Costa Mesa Sunday night.

COSTA MESA — Hundreds of coats and sweaters were donated to a local shelter and the Boys & Girls Club, thanks to the efforts of outgoing Councilwoman Katrina Foley, the police department and the Costa Mesa High School cheerleaders. On Friday, the group took the coats they collected for the past few weeks to the Boys & Girls Club on Tustin Avenue and then drove to the Orange Coast Interfaith Shelter and donated two 4-feet-high boxes of overflowing coats and sweaters, Foley said.

CORONA DEL MAR — It was a sort of passing of the torch – make that a baton – from one generation to the next. The Corona del Mar High School's Sea Kings dominated the gymnasium floor on Thursday as dozens of varsity and junior varsity cheerleaders performed alongside elementary school children in what has become a popular fundraising event for the squads. Varsity and junior varsity coaches Lauren Anderson and Cami Marseilles had a full day organizing the event while throngs of proud parents looked on from the sidelines of the gym. It was quite the scene as tykes performed stunts in sync with the older, more experienced cheerleaders.

At Sutra Lounge in Costa Mesa tonight, Derick Alexander isn’t going to be working the door as a bouncer like he has many Fridays. Instead he’ll be directing cheerleaders, overseeing a fashion show and monitoring every piece of production while he’s filming the pilot for a reality TV show created by his sister Roxanne Alexander-Pringle. “Pro Cheer Danz” is a potential competition reality show that focuses on seven cheerleaders graded for 13 weeks by their acting, dancing, modeling and cheering ability as producers search for a breakout star.

Deirdre Newman NEWPORT BEACH -- A group of cheerleaders at Newport Harbor High School are taking their quest to have their former coach reinstated to the community. Nine varsity cheerleaders and seven junior varsity pepsters are speaking out in a letter addressed to the community now that the initial shock over her departure has subsided. In late January, a district memo informed coach Lisa Callahan that she was no longer allowed on campus because of improper hiring procedures when she got the position 13 years ago. At the time, the cheerleaders said little, though they had been a vocal part of a controversy over the group's tryouts in the fall.
