Cheerleading Accomplishments

Good Essays
I have made many small accomplishes throughout my lifetime. One of my greatest achievments recently just happened. I tried out to become a varsity cheerleader, not expecting to make it and preparing myself for the outcome I made it. There were so many great girls trying out to make the varsity cheer squad. I expected nothing less than my number not to be on the school website at 4:00 p.m. If you try your hardest then you will succeed at anything your desire.
I started my first year at Durant as a freshman, I had tried out to become a cheerleader my seventh and eighth grade year. I made both years but when freshman cheer was coming to an end I was no longer interested in doing cheer. Honestly, I was embarrassed because I had a low grade in Geometry and knew that if I tried out they would tell me I could not do it. For my sophomore year I did not tryout for cheerleading. Soon, I immediately missed it because all of my friends were in it. I went to varsity football games and saw my friends down there, having fun. All of my other friends that were not in cheer had me distracted most of the other times to where I did not think about

My main focus was now only on academics because I had nothing else to do. Not being in cheer my sophomore year of high school really put a damper on things. The end of the first semester I met a boy who occupied my time, but when he had golf, practice or other things I was left at home with nothing to do once again. When we broke up I realized so many things I should have known before. I should have done cheer this year because I would have achieved so much more. Before to long it was time to tryout for cheer the upcoming year. I put my name on the list and gave trying out all I had. My grades were the best that they had ever been and I knew what it was like not to cheer so if I did not make it I knew I’d be

    My senior year came and I was in the best shape of my life but, the first week or two I just felt like not going forward and playing for Shawnee mission west anymore.

    But my mother didn't see my mindset was changing, she couldn't see I really wanted to do better, that maybe a challenge was needed all she could see were three classes that I was definitely going to fail. She was seeing another year that I chose to choose my extra curricular activities over my future, another year full of excuses, another year of coming home to no studying more attitude and disappointments. And although all that may be true, that was the first time in my high school career that I ever got honor roll. Even though, afterwards I slipped tremendously and spent the rest of the year trying to get back to honor roll my mother, sister and I couldn't have seen that…

    Tell what you knew: My first day of high school seemed like the beginning of the end to me. I wasn’t really that popular, I didn’t really have the last name to fit in with the town of Marathon, and many other reason to be afraid of what might happen to me based on what I heard from others and just the plain fears. Most of my freshman year was just me trying to stay out of people 's way, with everything that has happened to me it seemed like every day was a battle to not get my head in the wrong spot. Along with that my grades weren’t the best either. I was lucky to get a B in most classes, most of the time class was the last place I really wanted to be that day along with the idea that I was never as good as the kids around me.…

    Staying in school until around 5:30pm was always the norm for me. But it wasn't because I was in any varsity teams or advanced classes. Instead, it was because I was behind on the lesson and I was recommended by my math teacher to attend remedial classes during my first and second year. I had a carefree, light-hearted, "bahala na si Batman" kind of attitude towards my academics and I couldn't really join any varsity teams even if I wanted to because of it. My attitude and academics didn't change by much in my sophomore year.…

    For a person going into ninth grade, switching schools and knowing absolutely no one may be extremely terrifying. But, even though I wasn’t attending Valley, I still had all of my friends who I had left the year before. If I ever needed to talk, they were there. And you can’t say that that would have been the truth had I come from another school. In my sophomore year, which I am in now, I decided that coming back to Valley would be the best decision for my education and that I needed the help and support that my Valley Family could offer me.…

    I made it into the cheer squad at my new high school, REV. Jadyn and Kylie both had wanted to be on the team, but Jadyn quit before tryouts, and Kylie did not make the team. I never really got to hang out with either of them during the summer. Even though I still communicated with them often through texting, it didn’t seem as if our friendship connection was the same. I was super excited to go back to school.…

    Somewhere in the middle of the season I started to catch fire becoming a major part of our success. Colleges were interested in me but I didn’t know anything about SATs or what I needed to do to apply for college. We ended that season losing again in states in the semifinals finishing the season with a 21-3 record. It was the end of the season and I had offers from division one and division two schools. My only problem I didn’t take the SAT or the ACT had a good GPA but because of me being so young I just didn’t know how to get to the next level, college.…
