CYOA Interview

by Haley Valles

Ally Coronas interview about cheer.

When did you start doing cheer?

  • I started doing cheer when I was only 9 years old.

Is this something you’d like to continue out of school and onto college?

  • It’s a possibility, I just have to see where life takes me, but I can definitely see myself cheering more in the future!

Was it challenging being on varsity when you were only a freshman?

  • Yes, because I didn’t know most of the girls on the team and I felt like I had to give my all to impress them, be accepted, and to let them know I am as dedicated as anyone else.

What has this experience taught you?

  • It taught me that by working hard, I can reach my goals and become a better athlete and person.

What has been your favorite part of cheer?

  • The football games because they’re really exciting and everyone is showing a lot of support and spirit.

Most memorable moment with your team?

  • It had to be sophomore year when we won our National competition in Vegas.

If there was something about cheer you could change, what would it be?

  • They way people perceive us as cheerleaders and think we are stereotypical and do not deserve to be called athletes.

Scariest moment during cheer?

  • Last year right before our Vegas competition, I sprained my ankle during practice and had to be on crutches for a month.

An accomplishment you made during cheer?

  • I think the biggest accomplishment I made was being on the varsity team all 4 years of high school.

If you could redo your cheer experience in high school all over again would you? Why?

  • Yes, because it was the best and most memorable activity I participated in high school.
