Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Claire Young


Nathan has moved into his own apartment, away from both parents. To prepare for a match away, Coach orders Lucas to coach Nathan's weakest points, and makes them uneasy roommates; in the evening the boys sneak out but the strip joint Tim 'could get them in' turns out to be queer. Peyton and Sparkle Classic cheer-leading coach Brooke also find themselves bunking together; when Theresa falls sick, Haley is recruited and gets a crash course. Mouth spies the other teams -he demonstrates with more talent then most girls!- so they rework both choreography (Brooke) and music (Peyton); after training Brooke gets the hot pool opened, the boys jump in and coach grills chaperons Karen and Peyton's dad Larry Sawyer, but nobody minds. The new routine rocks, so Brooke wins the choreography prize. In the game Nathan uses the fade-away Lucas proposed and scores the winning point. At the home front manager Keith feels smothered by Dan and his men, and makes a drastic choice. Written by KGF Vissers

The team states that they will be going to Charlotte to play in the basketball classic.

I'd like to give her a jazz finger
15 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

I love a good cheerleader competition, and Brooke shows another side to her character.

Good to see that mouth is getting more air time. He is a great guy, and i like the dynamic between him and Brooke. I especially liked when he did the cheer routine. So cute.

Nathan having his own apartment is so cool, and I'm glad he is able to get out of that bad home environment. I wish I had that much privacy when I was in school.

I'm kinda over Lucas and Nathan not liking each other and putting Hayley in the middle. Just move on already.
