Morrill High School in Nebraska is getting some extra attention these days. And the attention is not because they had a winning cheer routine at the Hartman Event Center. It was because of the courage of one senior cheerleader, Katrina Kohel.
According to an interview with the Omaha World-Herald, the Senior cheerleader told her coach, “I want to go to state, and I will cheer by myself.” And that’s exactly what she did.
Katrina was originally on a squad of four girls. But three of them quit a week and a half before the competition due to “personal reasons.” So Katrina had a choice. She could also quit and the team would just not participate in the three-day cheer competition. Or, she could put on her cheerleading uniform and represent her team, and do it by herself. After talking about it with her mom, Katrina decided to do a one-person cheer routine.
Check out the amazing routine below!
