In its second year, The Bulldog Pride is a cheerleading squad for students with special needs. Last year, when Tonya Lazzari saw how much the students in her special education class loved cheerleading, she and teachers Carolyn Vickerstaff and Kim Allen worked together to provide an avenue for their students to get involved. Bulldog Pride cheerleaders are on the field at every home game pumping up the team and crowd. Back row, from left to right are Katie McFarland, Quanisha Mitchell, Tyra Frazier, Cassie DeSantiago and Beth Browning. Front row, from left to right are Delitra Finley, Jamal Huguley, Brianna McDade, Taylor Woodall, Alexis Dallas and Kathleen Leonard.
