United High School “Storms” Gym for GMQC Score Pre-Game Pep Rally

The Red Storm came out in full force. By 5am, students were already filling the gymnasium. To get them going, the cheerleaders did their thing:

There were a number of local businesses and restaurants who helped make the pep rally even more fun by donating tons of prizes that were raffled off throughout the morning. We would also like to thank today's sponsor, MC Sport and More, which gave away t-shirts, hats, jackets, and gift cards:

The GMQC Score Pre-Game Pep Rally ended with United's Marching Band playing a tune you're probably familiar with:

Thank you to all the students, school leaders, parents, community members, and businesses who helped make today a huge success. Remember to watch The Score right after WQAD News 8 at 10pm on Friday and Sunday for the best high school sports coverage in the QCA!
