This past week, our cheerleaders attended UCA Cheer Camp at Miami University! Needless to say, the girls cheered their hearts out and made us all proud! We came home with many awards, trophies, and memories that will last a lifetime!! We came to camp with one goal- to represent Colerain the best we could! We are proud to be Cardinals and love cheering for our school.
