Wednesday night, a Michigan State cheerleader was rushed to the hospital after hitting the gym floor in the middle of a game. This was a result of falling out of a stunt. It was reported that she is in stable condition.

Did you know that 65% of all the catastrophic injuries in girls high school sports in the past 25 years are Cheerleading injuries? This is should be enough evidence for anyone who doesn't believe cheerleading is a sport. Every year teams are pushing for bigger and more innovative routines. This requires more advanced tumbling and stunting. Cheerleading isn't just about sideline cheers any more. You need to vigourously train as a team. After all, a team is only as strong as its weakest cheerleader.
