Dodge City Cheerleaders Thankful To Be Alive
02/26/2011

Members of the Dodge City High School cheerleading team escaped serious injuries when the vehicle they were in rolled over as they were on their way to the state wrestling tournament.

Dodge City athletic director Jay Gifford says three vehicles were taking wrestlers, coaches and the cheerleaders to the Class 6A tournament in Park City when the accident occurred Thursday on U.S. Highway 50 near Stafford. The cheer coach was driving. She said she hit a patch of ice.
"We went into the ditch and the back hit a pole and fishtailed," said cheer coach Mckenzie Lueders. "We came to a stop and rolled over onto the roof," she said.
"We were in the hospital and we were like, do we still get to go to state wrestling?" said cheerleader Kaitlyn Trent.
One cheerleader cut her hand and another had a small scrape on her face. They were treated at the Stafford hospital before making their way to the state tournament in Wichita.
