Ti Cats all female cheer squad a thing of the past

It was done with little fanfare, but the Hamilton Ti Cats cheerleading squad is gone, replaced by what the Cats call the Performance Team.

For the first time in its history there are guys on the squad.

Gone are the pom poms and skimpy outfits, team members now sport athletic wear.

Ti Cat officials say there will be more fan prompting routines that involve a lot of movement and tumbling.
