Plenty to Cheer About: New Squad Named!
April 17, 2008

he Redskins Cheerleaders have announced the 2008-09 squad--and the new team's makeup consists of 28 returning veterans and 14 rookies.

The Bethesda Theatre in Bethesda, Md., played host to Final Auditions on April 8 as top candidates from a pool of about 400 competed in the show.

The contestants competed for a roster spot after a week of auditions, photo shoots, dance rehearsals and a swimwear fashion show.

The contestants performed advanced dance routines that were more than a minute in length. Then they performed a sideline routine to show if they had the personality it would take to obtain one the 42 spots that would make up the 2008-09 squad.

After hours of deliberation, the 46th edition of the Redskins Cheerleaders were announced. They hail from the Washington, D.C., region, as well as Japan, South Africa and Puerto Rico.

And here they are:
