The 2014-2015 Minnesota Vikings Cheerleader season came to an end on Friday, February 20th as the end of the year banquet went underway. Held at the beautiful Bearpath Golf and Country Club, the evening was nothing short of amazing. As the girls arrived, we reminisced about the incredible season we had, and caught up on what we had missed in each other's lives over the past month. It was comforting to be with the MVC family once again.
The evening began with a wonderful video created by Ted Kopacek and Chad Ryburn, showing clips of dances, appearances, gameday, Probowl footage and even some funny outtakes throughout the year. It was amusing to see our costumes quickly change from two pieces to snowsuits and see our adaption to the outdoor stadium. We then continued the night by honoring each captain and the memories we will never forget about them. In return, the captains reminded us of humorous moments and heartfelt memories about each person on their small teams. There was laughter, tears, musical talent and evening some unforgettable impressions.
Next, Probowl Cheerleader Kaylee spoke of her experiences in Arizona and the excitement of performing on Probowl gameday. This was followed by an awards presentation from head coach Tami Krause. Our awards are special because they are voted on by our fellow teammates. The evening wrapped up with speeches from Tami, and assistant coaches Theresa Baugus and Brianna Stepanek. They shared inspirational words about the team, the season, memories they would never forget and lifelong lessons that we will keep with us forever.
The banquet may have been an end to the 2014-2015 season, but the memories we shared and bonds we created will last a LIFETIME!!
