LARAMIE, Wyo. -

The University of Wyoming Cheerleading squad and Wildfire dance team have been selected for the 2004-05 athletics season. The Cheerleading squad will feature 34 members including a coed squad and an all-girl squad. The Cheerleaders perform at UW events to get the Cowboy and Cowgirl fans charged up during the games. The Wildfire dance team will have 13 members, which is three more than last year's team. Wildfire will perform during time-outs and at halftime of Cowboy basketball and football games.

Both the Cheerleaders and the Wildfire Dance Team are raising money to compete in the National Cheerleading Competition in Daytona Beach, Fla., April 6-10, 2005. Anyone interested in donating may contact Betsy Kellerman at (307) 760-6711.
