There’s a first time for everything

School is over. She sits at home for a bit, grabs a bite to eat, and heads to her room. She sits at her mirror. Brushing through her hair and pulls it back into a ponytail. She ties her bow, slips on her shoes, and is ready to go. She gets into her car, heads to the school, meets the other girls, and then they take their places on the mat.

Jessica Cory is a junior at Marion High School and is on the JV Wrestling Cheerleading Squad. It’s Jessica’s first year in wrestling cheer. Jessica has considered trying out for cheer prior to this year, but never has. Jessica smiled, “I’ve always wanted to be a cheerleader.”

She has wanted to try-out for football cheer, but unfortunately cannot because she is also on the volleyball team. She has considered doing basketball cheer and attended the practices for try-outs, but was unable to try-out. Jessica laughed,”[My favorite part of wrestling cheer]… Heather definitely.” Although there are a lot of things Jessica absolutely loves about cheer, but there is always something to challenge her. According to Jessica, the worst and hardest part of cheer is when your hands start to hurt and bruise.

The wrestling cheerleaders had their first meet yesterday. Jessica elaborated, “I think it went really well. We did really good.” Jessica is happy to say she was given the position of captain of the JV squad. However, she doesn’t feel much different as a captain. According to Jessica, cheer is exactly what it expected to be. She absolutely loves it and can’t wait to try-out for next year.
