It just hit me that basketball season is over, which means so is cheerleading. No more games, no more late nights, and no more memories with the cheer squad. All this leading to how our seniors will not be with us next year. My heart dropped; this doesn’t seem possible. Some of these seniors I have known for many years and some I have grown close to this year; I will miss them all, and I am so glad I got a chance to cheer with them.

I’m sure it is hard for them to fathom not being in cheer. The freshmen, sophomores, and even our one junior all looked up to the seniors. We looked up to them way more than they knew. I think we all talk about how adorable Olivia Salyers outfits are at least once a week. We are always talking about Maci Good and Sarah Walker, but how can we not when they are literally straight up models every day. They are also the cutest best friends I have ever met. Don’t even get me started on Brooke. Her style is the definition of perfect. Karleigh and I always get in conversations about how it is even possible for her hair to look perfect everyday. I have never been close to Morgan till this year, but I am so glad that I got to be her little sister. She was truly a great role model to me. She is so beyond pretty and her smile is so perfect. Thank you for being such a great big sister to me!

Last but not least are the two seniors that I have been looking up to since they were thirteen. I grew up in church with Lilli Shaffer and Katie Asher and always thought that I would grow up to be like one of them. All the JV cheerleaders get together just to talk about how good their makeup looks. They are the queens at doing makeup and the whole cheer squad knows it, even the coaches.

Looking back at our season, we all had lots of memories, lots of fun times, and lots of crying. Our memories include our halftime show, our kiddie camp, and even the night we decorated for sectionals. On the night we stayed at the school to decorate we went out to eat at Taku, which was filled with lots of laughs. No one will ever forget the prank that the seniors pulled on us at the beginning of the season. The seniors decided it would be funny to “sneak out” and the JV got so scared we cried for them, but the seniors were really just hiding downstairs to scare us. This season was so wonderful I can’t say I had a favorite part overall. Maci Good, one of our seniors, said, “My favorite part was getting so close to all the girls and coaches.” Olivia Salyers agreed by saying, “My favorite part about cheer was definitely getting to make memories with 15 other amazing girls as well as 2 awesome coaches! I’m so glad I got to meet the girls who have become my best friends.”

I’m going to miss spending time with all the seniors. The JV is sad to see you all leave, but we are excited to see where you guys will go in life. Thank you guys for being such great role models for us younger ones. We wish you all the best and hope that you will come back and visit us often.

    This is so sad! I remember my last volleyball game, every girl was sobbing. I can only imagine how you all must feel with such a large group of seniors. Enjoy the time you have left because it goes too fast! Great, meaningful article! The girls will love it. Great job.

    I love you so much McKayla! I’m glad that I got to be your big and got a lot closer to you this year. I’ll miss all of you so much, but I can’t wait to come back and see you guys and what you’ve accomplished. Great article!

    This is a bittersweet article that many of us can relate to as we too are saying goodbye to a senior close to us. I like the way you complemented all the girls and added their input as well. Good article!
