Calhoun High school cheerleading/kickline squads steal show at homecoming

The football team tends to get the most attention at Long Island high school homecomings. But the cheerleading and kickline teams are always there to keep the crowd pumped between the action. Photojournalist Jennifer A. Uihlein focused her lens on Calhoun High School's cheerleading and kickline teams during homecoming on Oct. 13, 2017. (When they weren't focusing their iPhones at each other, as you'll see.)
