The Good News Is... Senior cheerleaders still rock

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - 4 women dressed up in perfectly matched cheerleading uniforms. Cheering for nothing more than the applause they receive.

The ladies, the youngest of whom is 71, perform cheers with pom-poms and American flags. They do it to keep their bodies young. They also do it to keep their minds young too.

The group competes every year in the Senior Games, playing sports from basketball to croquet. The oldest on the squad is 83, but you can ask her, she doesn't feel a day over 18.
