CULLMAN COUNTY, Ala. – Good Hope High School hosted the third annual Cullman County Cheer Competition on November 6 where Good Hope Varsity finished with the title. 

Good Hope Head Coach of the Varsity,  JV and Middle School cheer teams Brandy Lowe, along with Sydney Chappell who works with the cheer teams, shared with The Tribune of their recent successes. 

Lowe and Chappell said they were very proud of the competitiveness the team showed on Saturday. 

“We are very excited for our teams’ performances Saturday,” Chappell said. “Our cheer program, as a whole, has grown a lot and become more competitive over the past few years. So much of that is due to the hard work of our athletes, including daily practices for the whole cheer season (which is year-round). Our girls work extremely hard and are truly a family, pushing and encouraging each other everyday. Our school and administrators are extremely supportive of our cheer program, and that is what helps make it a success.”
