Birkley Strong is a first year junior on the Hillcrest Cheer Team. Strong has been dancing since she was three, and after taking a short break, she decided to tryout for the team.

“I decided to tryout for the team for a new experience and to do something fun and different with my best friends,” says Strong.

Strong cheers alongside some of her childhood best friends, including Varsity head captain Annyka Scherschligt.

Along with cheer, Strong is also a member of the Hillcrest swim team. When she isn’t cheering, she likes to “Swim and hangout with my friends and family.” Strong also has a job at Protein Foundry.

Strong is excited to travel with the team to California this spring. “The cheer team takes a trip to California almost every year where they compete at cheer nationals, and they also go to Disneyland and visit the beach during their time there.”

Being a cheerleader is lots of work, but Strong says in the end it all pays off. Although practice may be a lot sometimes, she’s happy with her decision and always looks at the bright side of things.

“My favorite part of cheer is cheering and performing at the football and basketball games,” commented Strong.

Strong has loved her expereince on the team this year, and is excited to make new memories with the team.
