Michiana natives cheering on Purdue's sidelines

Posted:

Notre Dame is taking on Purdue Saturday in West Lafayette.

The Irish, hoping to rebound from last week's loss against Michigan.

There's a lot of cheering going on, perhaps some of the loudest coming from two Michiana natives.

But Kelsey Minix and Ashley Gingerich aren't cheering for the Irish tonight, instead, the allstar cheerleaders are on Purdue's sidelines.

Minix says it was fun cheering at Notre Dame Stadium last season, but she's excited to be back in Purdue on the sidelines for the Boilermakers Saturday.

Gingerich says she's been able to do a lot as a Purdue cheerleader, like compete on the national level and cheer on the sidelines for every game.

The girls' mothers, Brenda Minix and Nicole Gingerich are at the game Saturday cheering on their daughters.

They say they've been working for this since they were little girls and couldn't be more proud.
