The varsity cheer team at Lincoln-Way Central is often honored for hard work and athleticism, having qualified for IHSA State the past two years and placing eighth at the IHSA State Championships in 2019.

The team’s latest accolades were earned for sportsmanship — something that comes natural to the group, yet can be overlooked in the world of competitive sports — as the company GK Elite singled out the athletes for their fairness and friendliness by gifting them brand new custom uniforms.
