Torrance Shipman is a senior at Rancho Carne High School in San Diego. Her boyfriend, Aaron, is at college, and her cheerleading squad, the Toros, is aiming for a sixth consecutive national title. Torrance is elected to replace the team captain, “Big Red”, after Red graduates. Soon, however, teammate Carver is injured and can not compete with her broken leg. Torrance holds an audition for Carver’s replacement, and gains Missy Pantone, a gymnast transferred from Los Angeles to the school for senior year with her twin brother Cliff.

In a side-plot, Torrance flirts with Cliff. While watching the Toros practice, Missy recognizes their routines from a rival squad her previous high school used to compete against. After accusing Torrance of lying and stealing the routine, she learns from Torrance’s reaction she was unaware. Missy drives Torrance to her hometown of Los Angeles; they watch an African American and Latino/Hispanic team, the East Compton Clovers, perform routines identical to theirs. Isis, the Clovers’ team captain, angrily confronts the two. Torrance learns “Big Red” videotaped the Clovers’ practice, and stole their routines. On the ride home, Torrance confesses to Missy she believes she is cursed after dropping the Spirit Stick at cheer camp.
