After graduation, she was an active member of the D1 cheerleading squad for 4 years at the University of Wyoming. Her senior year of college, she served again as a captain. While attending UWYO, her team competed at two NCA National Championships where they placed 7th and 9th.

What she enjoys most about coaching is, "getting the extreme satisfaction of knowing that although you no longer cheer you can watch other young cheerleaders grow in a sport that they love. You teach them stability, team bonding, trust, time management, coordination, leadership, and most importantly confidence. My goals for this upcoming season are to create a strong, welcoming, well-rounded team and to make finals at state!"

2017 Season Success:
Head Coach: Kevin Volz
Coach Kevin Volz graduated from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, where he was a Rank Leader in the marching band. His strong background in golf and desire to give back to the community motivated him to begin coaching golf at LuHi.
Coach Volz talks about his memories from last season: My takeaway from a championship season is how important a true sense of “team” and having all members really love and support each other. Without that, earning the State Title never would have happened. The other major element for our success was focusing on our team scripture. Last year, it was from James 4:10: Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up. The Holy Spirit was on full display all season, proving itself from the written word in James 4:10!
