Members of the Grosse Pointe South girls’ competitive cheerleading team, standing back, under the tutelage of head coach Lisa Kurtz, hosted all 60 of the Grosse Pointe Red Baron cheerleaders during the Blue Devils’ final regular season home game last weekend. Kurtz is the South coach and teaches math at the high school. She has done an amazing job over the past six years with the squad, starting with only a seven-member team her first season to coaching a squad featuring more than 40. The South team won the Macomb Area Conference Gold championship last season. The Grosse Pointe Red Barons Cheer Coordinator, Heather Ulku, has seen her program more than double in size due in large part to all the energy of the South team. They host camps for the Red Baron girls in the summer, they provide most of our half time dances and come out several times to work with the girls. Coach Kurtz and her team really has worked hard, Ulku said.
