Cheer tryouts, February 24th, and drill team tryouts, March 3rd, are coming up soon. These girls are working hard to obtain their jumps, kicks, and splits.

 

“Giving your all and trying your best is the most important thing in trying out,” Hannah Ashley, ninth grader ,said. She has been a cheerleader  at Washington School since 7th grade. “I’m very nervous for tryouts and I have to realize that whatever happens is what God has planned for my life.”

Mary Kate Auerswald, ninth grade, believes her tumbling and her jumps will really help her during tryouts. She’s been a cheerleader before and hopes the experience will help her.

 

Eva Wade, a seventh grader, gave some perspective to anyone trying out. “If you want it, you got to go after it.”

Leanna Boozer, ninth grade already has her walkout cheer written and is tryout ready.

 

Even girls who’ve tried out before, get nervous. Mia Mascagni, eleventh grade, has been a cheerleader at Washington School since eighth grade.

 

“I’m kinda nervous about it, but I get nervous every year but I’m excited for my senior year.” Mia Mascagni said.

 

Drill team is all about the dances and mastering the tryout dance is the key to nailing the tryout.

 

“I’m really excited but I’m kinda nervous about the whole process. I’m ready to learn the tryout dance.” McKenzie Frederick, tenth grade, said.

 

“Since I’ve been on it last year, I know I will do well if I practice for it and work hard,” said ninth grader, Kayleigh Wadley.

 

For girls who are trying out for the first time, the process can be intimidating.

“I’m nervous because I’m not sure if I can kick as high as the other girls or that I may not make it,” said Maddie Jones. Jones is a seventh grader and this will be her first time to tryout.

 

“Drill team is a great squad I hope to be apart of again,” said ninth grader, Mary Grace Satterfield. This year will be her second year trying out since last year was the first year JV Drill Team held tryouts. Being number 23, she had to wait a while. After being called, the judges asked her to do leaps, turns, splits and of course kicks. After the solo part of the tryout, she had to do a kick dance with three other people. They finished the dance and she still felt a little nervous but excited. Her advice to anyone trying out would be to stretch and practice and have fun with it.
Both of these fun squads take hard work and dedication. Good luck to everyone trying out!
