Patty Frame is the varsity cheer coach at Goddard High School along with Carrie McSwain who coaches the JV squad and Nicole Tucker who coaches the Lion spirit and dance team. The trio have called Goddard home for seven years. “We will begin our eighth year together for the 2021-2022 school year. We each have our separate squads, but we coach together as one big spirit squad,” said coach Frame.
This year the Goddard cheer squad had 11 seniors with Aubrey Thomas leading the way as head cheerleader and captain. In the Fall, Abbie Steele was the assistant captain. “All of our seniors were great leaders this year and helped keep a positive environment for the squad,” said Frame. “This team was not able to go to camp or stunt this year, but through it all they have maintained the best attitude. They have all pitched in when I needed volunteers for an event or help with a project. Their incredible attitudes is something that stands out to me. They are wonderful young ladies.”
The future of Goddard cheer is in very capable hands. “Carrie and I will continue to coach our youth organization so we can feed into our middle school and high school programs in the Goddard District. We also have supportive parents from the elementary age all the way up to the high school level. Hopefully the 2021-2022 school year will look a little more normal. We are hoping the girls will go to camp and get to do some of the things they weren’t able to do this past year. We hope to keep everyone safe and healthy as we gradually work back into normal routines.”
