Cherokee’s Lizzy Webster – Northwest Technology Center Athlete Spotlight

By Ryan Stone

Lizzy Webster is a senior multi-sport athlete at Cherokee HS and a senior leader on the cheer squad. “I try to get us organized when we’re at a game and make sure everyone knows what cheers we’re supposed to do, also help teach cheers and dances to some of the younger members,” said Webster, “we also decide what uniform we’re wearing on gameday and call out what cheers and chants we’re doing.”

Webster stays busy; she’s also in the middle of cross-country season. So far, she has placed fifth at the Timberlake meet and 11th at the Cherokee meet. “I just sure after a game on Friday night after a game that I get enough to drink and go to bed on time to make sure I’m up early for cross-country,” said Webster.

Webster is in the health program at Northwest Technology Center and speaks glowingly about the class. “It’s a really awesome program,” said Webster, “because it’s something that I really like to learn about and it really gives you more information about the medical field and life in general and just helps us get ready for college in general.”

The program has also given Webster hands-on experience and helped her decide on her future. “We got to go help at the nursing home, we learned how to work with them. We’ve learned a lot of basic first aid as well and it’s helped me decide on what I want to do for college, which is athletic training,” said Webster.

Webster is a standout in the classroom with a 3.7 GPA and she’s also involved in FCCLA. She also plays basketball and runs track. After high school she is leaning towards attending SWOSU to major in Athletic Training.
