Hard Work Paid Off!

Nowata’s Middle School Cheerleaders, Sage Collins (Captain), Destiny Apple, Paige Atkisson, Rushell Herrera, Moshonie Rice, Aiden Thompson, and Kylee Wickham participated in the Claremore Cheer Challenge on Saturday, November 15th at Claremore High School. There were squads there from Owasso, Coweta, and Mounds, just to name a few. Our cheerleaders placed 2nd in their class. They received individual trophies, as well as a large trophy that will be displayed in the new gym’s trophy case.

Before school even started, these athletes learned the routine. They practiced twice a week and tumbled once a week to get to this point. “We have worked hard for this accomplishment and I’m very proud of each and every one of these girls,” says their coach, Darla Wright.
