Sariah Geertsen – Drill – Mountain Ridge High School

As a second year school it is hard to overcome the new stigma that comes with any growing program. Sariah is our team captain this year and took every opportunity to lift her team to every occasion. With each competition our team rose up in the ranking. When region came, we took home the Region Championship trophy, all because Sariah helped her team find the dedication, hard work, and determination to defy the odds and beat everyone’s expectations. Because of Sariah, our team progressed in every practice, performance, and competition. We got better with every moment she was on the floor. She is a friend to every member of our team. She knows what each girl needs and how to keep them motivated as individuals. Drill team is a rigorous sport. We start in April and end in March. It’s a year round commitment, and Sariah never let the hard work bring her down. She knew this team had potential and pushed them to their best. When the team didn’t make it to state finals, she was the one who helped the team realize their accomplishments. She didn’t let sadness interrupt her desire for success and continues to help those around her be their best. She is an incredible captain and team member.

All state drill team member
