Cheerleading coach Heather Ambrus had the idea for the Sparkles, but it is cheerleader Rachael Stevens who has spearheaded their practices. Mary Ann Kasten, grandmother of Sparkle Jimmy Dahlhausen, said the group has helped her grandson focus and express himself. "He's so into it. It really gives him a chance to sparkle, so the name is appropriate," Kasten said. After homecoming, the Sparkles will continue to cheer at home football and basketball games, Stevens said.
