Basketball coach and Cougar alum Mike Carpine joined with this year's Weed High School cheerleaders to sing the school fight song during the 2010 WHS Kick-Off Barbecue fundraiser Thursday evening, Sept. 16, 2010, on the football field.

All of the Cougars' 2010 fall sports team members were introduced and ran through a tunnel of players and fans.

The event was a benefit for Weed High School athletics. Funds raised are evenly divided among all the school's sports programs.

It was held one day before Friday night's Black Butte Bowl against Mount Shasta.
