LAPORTE | Three LaPorte High School cheerleaders will be taking part in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

MacKenzie Yoder, Amanda Lemons and Morgan Wright were among a small percentage of cheerleaders selected to perform in New York City during a summer tryout at Ball State University.

"I'm very excited. Very proud of them," said Chris Lidgard, the high school cheerleading coach.

Lidgard said the girls had the option to take part in either the Macy's parade or the New Year's Eve parade in London, England.

Wright, the only cheerleader from LaPorte chosen in last year's tryout, chose to perform in London.

Lidgard said the girls left for New York City on Friday.

"It's just an awesome experience for them," she said.
