raiders 1
Members of the Manteca High cheer squad (shown here in front of the Coliseum) performed during the pregame of a recent Oakland Raiders game.

The Oakland Raiders vs. the Kansas City Chiefs game earlier this month featured a local pregame flair.
The Manteca High cheer squad performed alongside the famed Raiderettes on Dec. 6 at the Coliseum.
The previous day, the 10 varsity cheerleaders practiced with the Raiderettes, learning the choreography while further fine-tuning their routine to the “Autumn Wind” during the four-hour session.
The entertainment was moved to the pregame this year due to Tim Brown receiving his Hall of Fame award at halftime.
Members of the MHS cheer squad included: Holly Anderson, Ashley Lopez, Hope Palomar, Kiara Presley, Gabrielle Pitman, Erika Decena, Anna Zito, Josslyn Bettencourt, Vanessa Alicea, and Melanie Pio.
Lisa Quaresma is the head coach of the local squad and the MHS Cheer & Dance advisor.
