WE'RE BACK AT IT! As we dive into the cheer season, we would like to highlight a different athlete each month and acknowledge their team comrodery, hard work and dedication to our sport.
This month's Rock Star of the Month is Mollie Kate Story!
What is Mollie's biggest accomplishment as an athlete?
In the past two seasons alone, Mollie has qualified to compete at The Summit, the most prestigious competition for levels 1 through 4 in All Star Cheerleading, four times.. both teams she was on each season! Furthermore, for the 2015-2016 season, she and her Senior Level 3 team ‘Sapphires’ won the ‘wildcard’ round of Summit and proceeded to advance straight into finals!
What makes Mollie Kate stand out from other athletes?
There are several things that make Mollie stand out from others. First and foremost Mollie is a leader. She does not hesitate to cheer on her fellow teammates and is incredibly quick to find and contribute toward the solution to a problem. Additionally, Mollie’s work ethic is virtually unmatched. Before even being told, Mollie directs herself to the equipment to work on whatever she feels needs to be perfected whenever she has down time.
What is Mollie's specialty stunt or trick?
Mollie’s two specialty tumbling passes consist of a Punch Front for her level 3 routine and a Whip through to Layout (and Full!) for her level 4 routine.
From a coach’s perspective, what motivates Mollie Kate in the gym?
Mollie truly cares about pushing herself to be the best athlete she can be in order to benefit her team as a whole! She loves the sport and loves her teammates and would do absolutely anything to help them succeed.
What is your favorite memory with Mollie Kate?
"My favorite memory with Mollie consists of one private lesson in particular where she obtained not one, but two new skills! Mollie had worked hard and was eventually capable of throwing her whip through to full as well as her two to full!" - Coach Scott
What is Mollie Kate excited about this season?
Mollie is driven to add another two Summit qualifications to her list… making that all six teams qualifying in the last three seasons!
Special note from her coaches:
"Not only is Mollie both a leader and extremely talented, she is one of the kindest kids you will ever meet and that makes it all the more pleasure to coach her." - Coach Scott
"Mollie is one of those athletes that makes everyone happy to be around her. She's hard working, positive & a leader...3 great qualities to have in a teammate! It's been so exciting watching her get her Level 5 skills over the last few months!" - Coach Chris
Way to go, Mollie Kate! We are so proud of your continuous hard work!
