Stillwater junior Avery Luetkemeyer has been a cheerleader for seven years. She started in gymnastics and says that she found that it wasn’t for her. Her friends introduced her to cheer and it “instantly clicked” for her. She now cheers at Impulse cheer and Stillwater High School.

Her favorite thing about cheering on the Stillwater Pioneers is the people she is surrounded by.

“What I like most about competing at my high school is that I get to do it with my best friends, and Carolyn Walstad is an amazing coach,” she said.

Coach Walstad appreciates Luetkemeyer as well, sharing nothing but praise for her.

“Avery is such talented, hardworking cheerleader,” said Coach Walstad. “She is a silent leader by example and has the full respect of the squad. Avery’s tumbling full is beautiful and she makes it look effortless. She may be one of the best stunt bases ever at Stillwater High School. Avery is a true joy to coach. Her smile is contagious!”

Luetkemeyer has many good memories in cheer, and still more to be made, but one of her favorites to look back on is getting to compete at Nationals.

“My most memorable moment for cheer was going with my cheer team to Disney World and competing in the Nationals competition,” she said. “I made many memories I will cherish for a lifetime.”

As Luetkemeyer strives to be her best in and out of athletics, she looks to her parents and coaches for support and encouragement. She is grateful for the role they’ve played in her life over the years.

“I look up to my Dad, Mom, and coaches for always inspiring me and supporting me in everything I do,” she said. “They always push me to be my best and I am very thankful.”

Outside of cheer, Luetkemeyer is also involved in National Honor Society, Beta Club, and SMAC at her high school. She has hopes of continuing her cheerleading career in college and is working towards that goal every chance she gets.

“The thing that has motivates me to do my best in cheer is hopes of cheering in college at Oklahoma State University,” she said. “This also encourages me to do well in school and keep a good reputation.”
