The Rockford High School varsity cheer squad was invited to perform with the Grand Valley State University (GVSU) cheerleaders at their home game against Northwood on February 27. In addition to cheering with the college squad, the girls also led the crowd in cheers they created just for the GVSU team during the halftime break. GVSU won their game in overtime, 72-70.
