“It’s exciting and frustrating, and all in the same little package. I’ve been doing it for eight years, and I love it!” Said Coach Sue Shewalter. At the end of last school year, the eighth-grade cheerleading Coach Tammy Kimble resigned. This summer Coach Sue Shewalter was hired to replace her. Now Coach Sue coaches the sixth and seventh-grade teams, and the other coach, Cyndi Studer coaches the eighth grade and the competition team.

Coach Cyndi was very important in the process of picking Coach Sue for the job. She said, “I hired her because Sue is a close friend of mine, a great cheer coach, and I’ve known her for a very long time.” Coach Cyndi met her through Fort Thomas Jr Cheer and has coached with her before. She thinks that she will be a great addition to the cheer community and a perfect fit for the job. The sixth and seventh graders Coach Sue instructs also think she is a great fit for the job. Gemma Farris, a sixth grader, said, “The new coach is awesome! She is such a great teacher, and she is very kind. I’m so excited for this cheer season!”

Coach Cyndi said, “Another reason I hired her is that she has a lot of experience.” Coach Sue has been a cheer coach for about eight years and started coaching for her daughters’ team when her daughter started cheering for Fort Thomas Jr. Cheer. The reason Coach Sue applied for the job is that she loves to work with new cheerleaders, and she had always wanted to be a coach at the school. Chelsea Crisler, sixth grader, said, “Coach Sue is very nice, and she makes sure to not go too fast when learning cheers. She’s a very good teacher, and she is very patient.” Coach Sue said, “I love getting to work with the kids every day, and I love working with Cyndi because we work so well together.”

Coach Sue spends a lot of time coaching her teams. The cheerleaders usually have practices once a week, and girls on the competition team have practice twice a week added to the other practice. When the basketball games start, the girls on the team have to cheer for the basketball players two times a week as well. This means Coach Sue and Coach Cyndi spend a lot of time and dedication into coaching their teams.

Even though Coach Sue thinks it is frustrating at times, it can be exciting, and that is what cheerleading is all about!
