"Contributing much to the success of our athletic activities are our Varsity pepsters.
Equipped with originality and enthusiasm, these lively girls planned pep assemblies,
led the student body in cheering at football and basketball games,
and planned new and different ways to encourage better school spirit at Newport News High School."

 "Our pint-sized bundles of pep, the Junior Varsity Cheerleaders, also do a lot in encouraging school spirit,
not only at Junior Varsity games, but also in presenting unusual songs and skits in pep assemblies. 
These girls, as well as the Varsity Cheerleaders, are elected by the Student Body in the spring."
