Triple-Impact Competitor® Finalist, Class of 2017
Strawberry Crest High School
Alyssa Archer is a cheerleader from Strawberry Crest High School. She makes her work count by putting in the time and the care. “As an athlete I make myself better by putting in work on and off the mat. I dedicate myself to becoming the best I can be. I go to extra classes that help me with my tumbling and stunting. These classes teach me how to take in constructive criticism, as well as strengthening my technique and confidence in my skills. On the mat I treat every practice as if it were a competition. You have to train hard if you want to be the best. My mind set is focused on getting better, which helps me remember that I want to be better than who I was yesterday.”
Alyssa’s coach describes her as a leader. “As a coach, I believe leadership, accountability, and character are the foundations of any successful athletic team. I am pleased to find all these traits in Alyssa. She has the ability to self-coach and also coach other teammates through internal and external challenges and stress. She motivates teammates throughout the season to achieve great success through team discussions, sharing motivational quotes, and pep talks. Alyssa leads the team with a “no nonsense” attitude towards preparation and competition.”
