Pioneer cheerleaders anchor down
Squad invited to perform at Vandy
The Warren County High School cheerleaders traded in their colors for a day to cheer on Vanderbilt basketball in a televised game.

The Pioneer football team cheerleaders went rogue, but not without good reason.
Vanderbilt University needed some help filling in on the sideline for the Vanderbilt versus Chattanooga Mocs game. Usually, the Warren County cheerleaders are pretty loyal to the red, white and blue, but this was an opportunity that was once in a lifetime for the squad.
“The girls got the exciting news they were invited by the Vanderbilt University cheerleading coach to fill the vacant spot of her squad during the holidays,” said head cheerleader coach Stacey Elam. “Now that the football season is over, our cheerleaders are preparing for the upcoming competitions. To get the opportunity to perform in front of this type of crowd helps immensely.”
Normally, the Warren County High School football cheerleaders can be seen on the sidelines during football season cheering on the Pioneers. For this one-time event, they traded in their attire and graced the sidelines of Memorial Gymnasium in black and gold to cheer on the Commodores to a 2-point victory, 76-74, over Chattanooga.
Vanderbilt hit a 3-pointer in the final seconds for a thrilling victory.
The girls were also featured cheering Vandy on and running out the players with Vandy flags in the game’s opening segment that aired on the SEC Network.
