Morgan High School competed in state competition Wed. Jan. 25, at Salt Lake Community College. This was the first year this event was sanctioned as a 3A/4A competition, which meant that MHS spirit squad, coming from a 3A school competed against several 4A schools. 

While the southern division had two weeks after regional to fix their routines, the northern division only had to day to improve before going to state.

Two 4A schools came out on top claiming first and second place, while MHS spirit squad placed third edging out the other 4A schools and all the 3A schools. Their coach Sue Kelsey said, “I’m super proud of them, and I think they did awesome!” 

The spirit squad took third place in show cheer, third place in sideline time out cheer, fifth in sideline fight song and third in sideline dance.

The MHS spirit squad is made up of cheerleaders and the dance team.
