With a total of nine participants this year the Wauneta-Palisade Schools cheerleading squad is the biggest it has been in years. During a two-day technique camp led by McCook High School Cheer Coach Teresa Erickson, the WP cheer squad had the opportunity to learn new lifts, cheers and dances.
Missy Blackman, WP cheer coach, says that she enjoyed seeing the girls learn new skills and bond in the hot, humid Palisade gym.

Eric Exum, Brady Torpin and Joel Pelster teamed up to win the Red, White & Blue 3-Person Scramble held Saturday at the Enders Lake Golf Course.
Wauneta-Palisade’s Dave Kuhlen and Greg Gaston took part in the Nebraska Coaches Association’s All-Star Basketball Game July 24 at Lincoln North Star High School.
Although the pair’s Blue team lost 70-75, Pam Gaston said the event was fun for Greg and his family. G. Gaston played with and against several former teammates from his select team days. Gaston scored eight points in the contest.
The team of Trent Harshbarger, Lonnie Krueger and Chris Krueger shot a 64 for the day to win the 3-Person Scramble, sponsored by the Southwest Nebraska Ikes.
With the July 14 event behind them, racers at Phillips County Raceway have made it through the mid season championships and are ramping up for the second half of the season.
