Welcome to the official webpage of the Phillip O. Berry High School Cheerleading Team. As a member of the Highly Spirited Cheer Program you will have the opportunity to be a part of the exciting Cardinal Athletic Program. “Cheerleading is a Sport!”
From cheering on our football team in front of 1,000 fans or more, to motivating the abundant cardinal basketball fans to the chant of “Let’s Go P-O-B”, the fun only begins there. The Gold (Varsity) and Red (Junior Varsity) squads are competitive cheer squads that are working diligently to bring new and exciting cheer routines to the Cardinal fans. Our goal is to compete annually at the NCHSSA competition in Raleigh, NC. Yes, come check us, we plan to bring it!
