2013-14 Cheer Squad:
Vera Smirnova - Sophomore
11/ 17/13 - Paisley Murphy, daughter of Dr. Ryan Murphy, celebrated her 6th birthday with the Saint Leo University Cheerleaders.
Paisley and her friends enjoyed a day filled with cheers and crafts ending with a special shoutout at the Men’s Basketball Game against Shorter University.
The little cheerleaders learned a couple of cheers to perform for their parents and were delighted to show off their new skills. They decorated megaphones which they brought to the game and enjoyed a delicious cake featuring Saint Leo’s mascot, Fritz. Paisley had a special section of the bleachers reserved with green and gold balloons for her and her guests during the game. The little cheerleaders had their own pom poms which they shook in support of the Men’s Basketball team. Paisley’s last surprise was being the center of attention at the game while the crowd sang Happy Birthday.
