Kilene Smith makes cheerleading squad at University Park

5/4/2010 —
Penn State Mont Alto sophomore Kilene Smith, captain of the 2009-2010 cheerleading squad, was named to the large co-ed cheerleading squad at University Park for next year. "This squad is the 'best of the best' in the Penn State [system] and only four new girls were chosen to join the squad this coming year," said Christina Yoder, Mont Alto's head cheerleading coach.  Tryouts were held at the University Park campus last Thursday through Sunday and included training and interviews with the coaches. "Kilene is an exceptional cheerleader; she's a tremendous athlete and has a bright personality. She trained very hard for these tryouts and all the hard work certainly paid off. It will be great to see a former Mont Alto cheerleader on the sidelines of the football games this season," Yoder added. Kilene is a nutrition major from Selinsgrove, Pa. We wish Kilene the best of luck at University Park!
