(FeaturedNews.com) – Katrina Kohel, a 17-year-old senior, represented Morrill High School at the Nebraska State Cheer and Dance Competition all on her own. As she recalled, the entire experience was far outside of her comfort zone.
She added that this was not something that she would have normally done, but she did not want to have her senior year end on a low note, which was why she decided to take the chance and do it. Kohel ended up doing a solo after their already small cheer squad of four was unable to make it to the state competition. This decision was relatively last minute but after speaking with her cheer coach April Ott, Kohel decided to represent her school in the championship solo.
Ott told Fox News Digital that she was a bit shocked to hear that she would compete on her own, but she also thought that the fees and hotel room had already been covered so there was no reason not to attend.
Ott said that she had really enjoyed growing and learning as a member of the squad and seeing her come into her own as the team leader. Ott also pointed out that Kohel is a team player always willing to help other team members with anything they need.
She and Ott were committed to the task and worked hard to change the routine into a solo routine so that Kohel could compete with it. The crowd at the event was very enthusiastic and supportive throughout Kohel’s performance.
