Junior cheerleaders popped up to meet the challenge at the Nelson Island School basketball games on February 8-10, 2018. Fourth, fifth and seventh graders cheered at Toksook Bay, as high school boys and girls added their scores for the upcoming Bethel tournament during spring break. Players from Tununak and Newtok traveled to Toksook Bay to show their abilities, while the crowd cheered with the young cheerleaders from Nelson Island School and watched as the cart wheelers and pompoms flew by.
