EVART —  Marty Pattee is in her 28th season of coaching competitive cheer and is exited to start another season at Evart.

Pattee’s teams have 10 trips to the state finals, four regional championships and several conference championships.

“I had a young team last year, however, they worked hard,” Pattee said, “and by the end of the season they were a force to compete against. I think that the team worked well together and accomplished a lot.”

Key returnees this year include Dana Vore (senior), who will be back as a flyer this year, Macey Rich (senior), will return as a base, Kymberley Morrone, (senior), who will be back as a base, Hannah Moore (junior), who will be back as a back spot, Zandrea Geranen (sophomore), who is a base and a tumbler, and Mariah Fisher, who is a base and tumbler.

Key newcomers are Mackenzie Daniels, Kirissa Deacons, Christa Nelson, Kaitlyn Roberts, Ally Goss, Carlie Gostlin, and Tia McCauley who are all new this year and are working to earn their spots on the mat.

“I believe that this team can do anything it sets its mind to,” Pattee said. “They are hardworking and dedicated girls. We should have great voices and strong stunts.

“We are going to focus on our jumps, clean up our motions and continue to work on gymnastics. The team will be successful if they continue to work hard and put the needs of the team first. The talent can be developed if the attitude remains positive.”
