For this season we have nine football cheerleaders: me (Sadie), MaKayla DeBondt, Dria Urwin, Brittney Allard, Line van Prooj, Katelynd Reed, Elizabeth Newton, Brooke Luinstra, and Kaitlyn Vyskocil. This will be my and Dria’s third year. It is MaKayla, Brittney, and Katelynd’s second years. It is Line, Elizabeth, Brooke, and Kaitlyn’s first years. 

MaKayla, Dria, and I are seniors. Brittney and Line are juniors. Katelynd and Elizabeth are sophomores. Kaitlyn and Brooke are freshmen. Cheerleaders are in charge of a lot of things you wouldn’t expect. We are in charge of taking money for weekend tournaments, decorating locker signs for the athletes, practicing cheers, creating new cheers to build school spirit, decorating business windows for homecoming and also writing on athletes’ cars for homecoming. We also are in charge of creating themes for games and also making their posters. We also have to come up with all of the ideas for pep rallies.

Our cheerleading coach this year is also an English teacher at the school. Her name is Alex Roberts. She has recently been married and in response to how she manages coaching and a new marriage, she says that it’s definitely hard for them. They don’t see each other a lot with both of them having busy schedules. But they do make it work. She chose coaching as an option because, “I’ve always wanted to be a coach for a cheerleading team.” When reflecting on our team this year, Coach Roberts said, “They’re a fun group of girls and seeing them work together and have fun together has been exactly why I wanted to coach.”
