The Southwest High cheerleading squad will get the chance of a lifetime when it shows off its spirit at the Pacific Life Holiday Bowl in December at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego.
The varsity cheer squad was invited by the Bowl Games of America, an organization with professional choreographers that invite cheer, dance and drill squads around the country to perform at various college bowl games.
The Eagles were recommended and invited to represent the Imperial Valley.
“They were very excited,” Southwest cheer head coach Denise Harrison said.
The Eagles will join other invited squads to perform during the halftime show at the game. They will also participate in the parade along Harbor Drive leading up to the game and partake in four days of coordinating from the professional choreographers.
“They’re really excited because there’ll be professional choreographers there and some of them are hoping they might be able to stand out,” Harrison said.
