In Round Rock the UIL Legislative Committee has been meeting the past couple of days. Basically that's who sets UIL rules. Each year many different sports seek UIL sanctioning but have yet to get it, like bowing, and disc golf. This year the UIL has approved the sanction of a Cheerleading Championship starting with the 2015 - 2016 school year. The Medical Advisory Board pushed for this because by being sanctioned it would require schools to follow safety guidelines, and the medical board says there are more concussions from Cheerleading than Football by ratio of participants. While Dr. Carol Ann Bonds of SAISD voted in favor of this at Wednesday's meeting, she knows her district has some work to do help the team.

Dr. Carol Ann Bonds: "I've been wondering what I'm going to do because now the district needs to start putting a little more money. Our cheerleaders, Randy, pretty much fund raise for all of their expenses. It's going to help with safety and I just think those girls and boys deserve an opportunity. They're cheering for everybody else in competition."
