This year at Cactus Canyon Junior High, players from softball, cheer, and band were in the Lost Dutchman Parade Feb. 23.
The students thought it would be a great idea to be in the parade to show everyone what their school offers.
“The 13 softball girls that were in the parade had a blast passing out candy to the little boys and girls and they are looking forward to see the younger girls take their place next year,” said softball coach Bill Wilson.
Participants from each group tried their best to be enthusiastic to showing everyone in the crowd that each team is something special and unique.
“The girls did a few cheers along they way with laughs and enjoyment,” Wilson said. “They loved the attention from the crowd of the people who were watching the parade and did their best to steer up the crowd.”
The softball and cheer girls did not need to practice for the parade but the band did have to practice its songs to perform down the streets.
Almost everyone from each team was able to take part of their Saturday to represent CCJH.
“There were a few missing due to other activities, said cheer coach Cathy Messenger. “Out of 22, there were only two that were not able to make it.”
