Imac cheerleader injured at exhibition
An Immaculata High School cheerleader who was injured during a routine Saturday at the Tonganoxie Invitational is in fair condition at Providence Medical Center in Kansas City, Kan., a hospital official said Tuesday.
Jean Trotter was participating in a routine during a cheerleading exhibition in the Tonganoxie High School gymnasium when the injury happened.
Cheer squads from several schools participating in the Tonganoxie Invitational performed routines between the third-place boys and first-place girls games.
THS athletics director Brandon Parker said the accident occurred when another cheerleader fell.
As the other cheerleader came down, her foot kicked Trotter in the head. Trotter's head then collided with another squad member's head before Trotter fell to the ground.
