EVART\u00a0\u2014 Mariah Fisher completed a satisfying season in competitive cheer for the Evart Wildcats. Fisher was only a freshman, but had experience from junior high competitive cheer. \u201cYou\u2019re pushed more in high school,\u201d Fisher said. \u201cIn middle school, it\u2019s just trying to get it done. In high school, you work at it until you\u2019re perfect.\u201d The competitive cheer practice season started in November and the entire season ended in late February at districts. Fisher has watched with satisfaction as she and her teammates continued to improve. \u201cOur round three we changed a lot,\u201d Fisher said of the round that involves stunts and mounts. \u201cEach time we were getting better at it. We\u2019ve taken people in and out of rounds. We\u2019ve put some harder stunts in.\u201d Fisher and her teammates were educated in what judges specifically look for in their three-round performance. \u201cThey look for our voice in the round,\u201d she said. \u201cSome teams have less girls than we do, but they\u2019re still louder. We yell as hard as we can. The judges want the emphasis on the words.\u201d A highlight for the season was placing first at Marion and third at both home competitions. Fisher was a tumbler this season, and said the key to having success in her round is a tight body and strength, plus flexibility. The emphasis in practice was \u201chigh backhand springs to get my tucks,\u201d she said. Fisher also did sideline cheer and is considering doing track during spring. The importance of teamwork especially makes competitive cheer challenging, she added.
