The headline implies that the cheerleading tryouts will be held at Community High in Ann Arbor. You folks may want to clarify.

I love the athleticism of cheerleader competitions these days. It totally works with our current culture of that girls' achievements being important in their own right. It's gotten to the point where I'm actually surprised when teams actually bring them to games to parade with pompoms for (mostly) boys' activities. Change is good.
