OHS Cheerleading Coach Michelle King invited Octorara High School Senior Catherine Lasak to be a part of the cheerleading squad at the boys basketball game against Radnor.
Catherine showed her support for the team by cheering and encouraging the team, performing some of her dance moves that she has learned at the Oxford Center for Dance and being a proud Octorara Brave.
Catherine was born at Jefferson Hospital with a 7% chance of survival. She was born with a hole in her heart and also has Down syndrome. Many of us consider her our miracle. She makes us smile, laugh and appreciate life.
Catherine is pictured above cheering in the stands and doing a split in front of the squad. The cheerleading squad invites Catherine back to the gym another night to support the team.
The Braves defeated Radnor. We would all like to thank the Cheerleading Coaches, Squad and Catherine for allowing all of us to enjoy the evening even more!
