EVART — The Evart competitive cheer squad is looking at the 2017-18 season as one of impressive growth and improvement.

The season ended with the state finals earlier this month.

The Wildcats ended their season in the district meet and four seniors made their last performance for the program.

Dana Vore was among the seniors and was in her third year of varsity cheer. She was a flyer.

“It went pretty good,” she said. “Each competition, we’ve increased our score.”

Vore indicated round 3, which involves stunts and mounts, was the best one for the Wildcats. She said round 1 needed some improvement.

“We just wanted to keep our scores going up,” Vore said, “and get to point where we want to be.”

Macey Rich was another senior who cheered all the way through high school.

“Our team is improving,” she said during season. “We set goals and we want to meet them. We’re doing very good.”

Rich agreed with Vore that round 3 was Evart’s strength.

Kymberley Moore, another senior, was in her second year of competitive cheer. It’s her second year of cheer.

“I just wanted to try something new,” she said. “I enjoy going together with the team and having that adrenalin rush up on the mat.”

The other senior is Leoni Fritsch, who was a foreign exchange student from Germany. She had never cheered before, but decided to give it a try. She had watched movies of cheer, and this was a key motivation for her to join the program.

“I like the friends, everything,” she said.
