Our next student-athlete spotlight features Madison Grieb! She is currently in her third season of competitive cheerleading after spending the fall doing sideline cheer. So far her team has been having a very productive season. They have only had two competitions so far and have been showing a lot of improvement. They were excited to have placed in the top four at their first competition of the year. Madison’s favorite part of the season this year has been getting to spend time with her teammates at pasta parties. Before every competition, the cheer team has a ritual of doing their hair together as a group. Madison and her team look forward to working hard throughout the rest of their season and continuing to bond. Keeping a positive attitude and being consistent in hitting their routine are two important goals this year. The toughest part of the season so far has been having last minute changes in the routine due to injuries. Madison’s favorite part of Salem Athletics is all the fun events that they put on such as tailgates in the fall. Cheer has taught her how to be a versatile athlete and to keep an open mind when taking corrections.
