Mount Gilead MS cheerleaders trying to win new mats

The Mount Gilead Middle School cheerleading program is in the running to win practice mats from Great Mats.

Of over 650 applicants, they advanced to the final 30 and are in a Facebook contest where the top five “like” receivers will have the opportunity to win. If that happens, the MGMS wrestling team would also get new practice mats, as it is a two-part prize.

To vote for the Mount Gilead squad, go to the Greatmats Cheerleading $1000 Giveaway Photo Ballot Facebook page ( and “like” their photo. The deadline to vote is April 5.
