"Contributing much to the success of our athletic activities are our Varsity pepsters.
Equipped with originality and enthusiasm, these lively girls planned pep assemblies,
led the student body in cheering at football and basketball games,
and planned new and different ways to encourage better school spirit at Newport News High School."

 "Our Jayvee Cheerleaders play a large part in keeping up school and team spirit.  Eagerly following each event,
the Junior Varsity Cheerleaders urge the 'Breezes' to many victories in both football and basketball.  Besides supporting their team on the field, they participate in pep assemblies.  "
"The 'Rockettes' are a feature attraction during the half-time
of each football game, and one which the crowd impatiently anticipates.  Their original dance routines add sparkle and zest to pep assemblies as well as to the games.  Originally a group
of sixteen girls, the 'Rockettes' have narrowed down to seven, and have thus been able to work harmoniously among themselves."
