Basketball Cheer - Phoebe Reynolds, Sophomore, 2nd year cheer
Phoebe has shown great advancement in her overall dedication to cheer this season, but it has definitely shown over the last couple of months. She takes advice well from her teammates and coach and puts those words of advice into action. She is also a great flyer and there hasn't been a stunt she can't hit.

Aiden is a four year quiz bowler who is soft spoken but dependable on the varsity scholastic bowl excelling in astronomy and the sciences but also knows some trash and pop culture categories. Aiden is 4th on the varsity team in scoring and has eclipsed the 100 varsity toss-up mark in his career this past Saturday.
