Athlete of the Week: Becky Lorge

The Princeton cheerleading squad has won first place at three of the four competitions it has competed in this year and leading the girls is lone senior Becky Lorge.

Becky was born in Princeton and is a four-year member of the cheerleading squad. She first joined the team after her Mom saw a flyer advertising auditions during her freshman year at Princeton High school.

Becky says she had never thought about being a cheerleader but tried out for the team.

“I found that I liked it a lot,” she said.

Cheerleading isn’t just standing on the sidelines rooting for the Tigers, Becky is quick to point out.

“We do a lot more than cheering,” she said.

She enjoys learning new routines and performing at competitions. That’s where the team’s hard work is really recognized.
