I was asked again to photograph the Lemoore All Stars cheer teams during their most recent competition this past Saturday. This time we went to the Visalia Convention Center for the Aloha Spirit Championships. Between the blaring music, screaming cheerleaders, and loud spectators it was fun day! From the famous "Durrr Face" (you'll have to sign in to see that one but believe me you'll know it when you see it) to some cool stunts in the practice area and on the floor, we managed to get some really cool shots and here are a just a few of the 170 or so images from the day.
I swear that every time I see these girls (and guy) go through their routine I'm amazed. Anyone who thinks that being a cheerleader is all kitten whiskers and tickle fights needs to really attend one of these competitions. Throwing a girl 10-12 feet in the air and then catching her, and doing it again and again and again... That takes stamina, strength, and complete trust. It's impressive. My hat's off to you, Lemoore All Stars.
