SYRACUSE – Three recent graduates of Suburban Council high schools will be on the sidelines on December 28th in Orlando, Florida cheering on the Syracuse University football team as they take on West Virginia in the Camping World Bowl (5:15 pm on ESPN). Madison Dallas (Saratoga Springs – Class of 2017), Brenna Hart (Shenendehowa – Class of 2017) and Caitlyn Harley (Shaker – Class of 2016) are all members of the Syracuse University Coed Cheer Team.
The trio made the team, which cheers for the Orange for both football and men’s basketball seasons, during tryouts held in May 2018. This is Caitlyn’s third season on the squad and the second for both Madison and Brenna. All three girls cheered for their respective high school during their time in the Capital District, with Madison and Brenna also cheering for the private cheer gym Cheer Intensity in Green Island.
In addition to their cheer responsibilities during Syracuse football and basketball seasons, the team also gets the opportunity to appear at special events and at Syracuse area fundraisers. They were part of the opening ceremonies at the New York State Fair this past summer, and attended events benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central New York, the United Way and the Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital among others.
Also, Madison, Brenna and Caitlyn were also recently chosen to be members of the cheer team that will represent Syracuse University at the UCA College Cheerleading and Dance Team National Championships held in Orlando, Florida on January 18 -20, 2019.
