Correction from CLC: This is not the first cheerleading squad CLC has had. There was been a pom squad in the mid-2000s and there were cheerleaders in the 1980s-90s. For the first time in the College of Lake County’s history, there will be Lancer Cheerleaders taking the floor to cheer and perform half-time shows during tonight's girls' and boys' basketball games, beginning at 6 p.m. This group of young ladies comes from around the county, most with cheer experience as both youth rec and high school cheerleaders.
