Horace Mann Cheerleaders are among the most
highly visible and active teams in the Little Rock School District. These young ladies have one goal
in mind: to generate spirit and crowd involvement
at Mann Middle School. They cheer and dance for football and basketball games, attend various functions for community service hours, make numerous appearances, and compete in various cheer competitions throughout the state.  Mann Cheerleaders consistently place 1st and 2nd in
their competitions and have been nationally
ranked since 2009.

Drill Team

At Mann Magnet, Drill Team isn't just a sport,it's
a passion. Drill Team performs at all football and basketball games. Also, the Drill Team goes to competitions all around the state. As many team members would say,"Drill Team is an excellent opprotunity and it can teach you a lot." To be on
the Drill Team, you must be in the seveth or
eighth grade. Drill Team tryouts are in early
March. The practices start at the beginning of the first semester and students are expected to
practice three to five days a week.
