The Shepard Coed Cheer leading Team brings back all but four members from last year’s team that finished tenth in state. They have a lot of experience and have their eyes aimed at placing top 3 in state this season.

“There is so much talent on this team.” This will be the most successful team Shepard has had if they all work together as a team, keep their grades up, stay healthy, and change their habits to have better execution as a team,” said head coach Nicole Staehlin.

The team lost all three boys from last year’s team however the four new boys: Mitchell Elzinga, Terry Stonitsch, & Nick Adkins look to pick up right where the previous members left off. A freshman boy, Martavious, who was featured on America’s Got Talent with the tumbling group, Chicago Boys, also brings fresh talent and skill to the team.

“They have improved rapidly in just the few months they have joined,” said Staehlin.

Coach Staehlin has high hopes for this group this season.

“Achieving a podium placement (1st, 2nd, 3rd) is definitely attainable if the team focuses on the execution of their skills,” said Staehlin.  

“We have a very good routine right now,” said senior Abigail Notter, last year’s team MVP. “If everything goes well, top 3 is definitely an option.”

With such high goals, Staehlin knows there is a lot of work to be done.

“We’ve improved in every category this year, but something we really have been focusing on is our jump to tuck timing and execution. No one is perfect yet,” said Staehlin.

Look out for the Shepard Cheer Team as they make another strive towards the state finals this season.
