Two members of the Cheerleading team will be continuing on with their athletics, at the collegiate level. Sarah McFarland signed to Missouri Southern and Lillian Conner-Urnise signed to Iowa Central at a signing ceremony before school Thursday in the auditorium.
“[Cheering in college means the world to me. It means all the hard work I put in has counted and mattered and it feels amazing that I can continue doing what I love and at collegiate level,” said McFarland.
McFarland will also be pursuing a degree in education and has found a good match in her school of choice.
“I chose this college because they understood my mission and where I wanted to go with cheer. The school is small and it’s a good opportunity to get know everyone and not just be another face,” she said.
Conner-Urnise will be pursuing a degree in dietetics and looks forward to the opportunity to continue her cheerleading career.
“It means that I can reach my full potential and use those skills later in life to help younger people learn how to cheer, and It’s a way to get college paid for,” she said.
The spring signing moved the number of Chrisman student-athletes continuing their sport in college to eight, with one signing in the fall and five more having signed in the winter.
