St. Martin High School sending three student-athletes to the next level

Three top flight student-athletes from St. Martin High School are all taking their talents to the next level.

On the cheer team, McKenzie Robinson signed her national letter of intent with West Georgia, alongside Claire Paske, who’s repping Southern Miss to the top. Both of them are main bases and Paske is actually the one who convinced Robinson to try out for cheer prior to the seventh grade.

On the dance team, Natalie Hall let the ink dry with MGCCC, fulfilling a lifelong dream for the next two years that all started when she was two-years-old.

Paske said, “I’m really overwhelmed right now. This is just a lot because I’ve been working so hard for this and so has Kenzie and Natalie, and it just means so much to me that I get to do this with my best friends and achieve this goal that we’ve all been wanting since we were children.”

Robinson said, “It changed my life because, for one, the team environment of it, because gymnastics is kind of an individual sport, so everything we did was individualized. I never really had to work with a team, so it helped me learn how to work with a team and work with other peers to accomplish a common goal.”

Hall said, “Signing day as a milestone is just a reminder of all the hard work that I had to complete just to reach this point, and what I will have to complete for the future. It’s just a big reminder that I’ve pushed myself and worked and worked and worked and this is the reward that I receive, and I’m beyond blessed to receive it.”

In February, St. Martin cheer finished in sixth place at the UCA Game Day National Championships.
