The aspiring cheerleaders filed into the West Brunswick High School gym one-by-one, a line of 3- and 4-year-old girls, a line that extended from one end of the basketball court to the other. When all of them had been escorted into the gym by the Lady Trojan cheerleaders, they seated themselves on the floor.
They had to make way for another group of girls, the 5- and 6-year-olds, who followed the same path and took their places on the floor.
Next were the 7- and 8-year-olds.
Then the 9- and 10-year-olds.
Finally, those ages 11-13.
