Allissa Neher

Varsity Cheer Coach

I have been cheering since I was in 7th grade and cheered both in my junior high years at Vistancia Elementary and on a competitive club team called Valley Creative Cheer. I’ve taken home many first place titles from competitions in Arizona and Nevada. My favorite National Grand Champion title was given to my team at the USA National competition in Disneyland. I cheered at Liberty High School on Varsity for all four years and won many awards as “most spirited." During my junior year, I was voted co-captain. For my senior year, I was voted as Captain. I have taught at summer camps, choreographed numerous routines for high school and junior high teams, and have been in leadership positions. I have loved cheer since the second I learned what it was and it has always been my dream to one day coach and be that example my coaches were to me.

Emily Hegdahl

JV Cheer Coach

I was surrounded with cheer/dance/tumbling my whole life. I was on my high school varsity squad for four years where I competed in the 5 man stunt group and show cheer in AIA State Championships. After high school, I coached elementary and junior high cheer and dance for a few years. I am passionate about stunting and competitive cheer. I am thrilled to help advance the students' athleticism and school spirit. When I am not coaching, you are likely to find me doing hair, planning events, or traveling!
