Q: Why did you start cheering? What did you do before?

Q: How do cheer and gymnastics relate to each other? Which do you prefer?

A: Cheer and gymnastics are relate to each other because in cheer you tumble and same with Gym you are also part of a team in both. I’d rather be doing cheer because I can make more friends my age and go through the same things that I do with school and school.


Q: What was the hardest part about transferring from JV to varsity? What was the easiest?

A: probably the hardest part was meeting all the new older classmates and stuff like the juniors and seniors. The easiest part of going up to varsity here is probably knowing all the cheers already and  knowing I was already ready to be on the team.
