BLUEFIELD, Va. (WVVA) — On Monday, Laken Chronister committed to continuing her academic and athletic career at Bluefield College.
The senior has been at nearly every football and basketball game over the past few years — as a cheerleader. She will continue to do so as a member of the Rams cheer squad next year.
Chronister’s new coach, Mykenzie Roach, is a Graham alum herself. It’s a factor that played a great deal in her decision.
“Well I knew here before and then she recruited me and she just inspires me to do better in cheer,” Chronister said.
She is excited to be a part of a squad that is currently in its second year of competition. Chronister plans to major in early education.
