Cheerleading is a contact sport

From the exotic land of Wisconsin comes today’s lawsuit highlight. The Wisconsin Supreme Court has ruled that cheerleading is a contact sport. It’s a case that is being watched closely in the cheerleading community, we’re told.

The court ruled a high school cheerleader cannot sue a teammate who failed to catch her while practicing a stunt.

Says the Associated Press: “The National Cheer Safety Foundation said the decision is the first of its kind in the nation and a victory for Wisconsin cheerleaders who will no longer have to worry about getting sued.”

That should give them more time to worry about catching their teammates.
