What do you think are the most important things to make the squad more successful?

The most important thing to a successful squad is cooperation and determination. You have to be willing to work together as a team and be the best group you can be in order to succeed.

What are the most important traits for a cheerleader to possess?

The most important traits of a cheerleader would have to be leadership and flexibility. Not just in the physical sense but the emotional sense. You have to be willing to try new things and get out of your comfort zone.

What is your favorite cheer memory?

My favorite cheer memory was going to Dallas, Texas this past weekend and competing at NCA Nationals with my team. It was such a good experience and I was happy I was able to spend it with such a great group of girls.

Do you plan to cheer in college?

It would be fun to cheer in college but it requires a lot of traveling and I’m just going to focus on school.

In order to prepare for competition we have numerous practices to make sure all of our dances look the best they can. It takes a lot of work, but it’s all worth it in the end.
