Entering the 23rd season under Head Coach Kim Fleming, the Dawson County competitive cheer team used the summer to steadily prepare for what could be one of their best seasons. “We have a history of a very successful program,” Fleming said. “This is the strongest team Dawson has had in a long time.” Setting the standard for this year’s team is Nicole Mulkey. Currently a senior at Dawson County High School, Mulkey has been participating in some form of cheering since the age of 3. “I used to do cartwheels,” Mulkey said. “So, my parents enrolled me in cheerleading when I was little.”
