Two New Jersey teens, who both face different types of challenges, continue to show off their immense school spirit.

Kate Spadaro and Jade Disanti are both members of the Camden Catholic cheer squad in Cherry Hill.

Disanti, a junior, cheers along with her peers on a prosthetic leg.

Spadaro, a senior and team manager, is one of her biggest supporters. She also says being a cheerleader gives her a voice.

"I am just acting like one of the girls that is all I ever wanted to be. I just love that I can come out and share my voice because I love being loud," says Spadaro.

The "fighting Irish" cheering definitely paid off Friday night, leading the team to a 35-0 win against Bishop Eustace Prep.
