Allyssa King takes over as head cheer coach

Baker University alumna Allyssa King is returning to be the new coach of the cheerleading squad in the place of Jeremy Webb, who took a teaching job in Korea.

King has been a cheerleader since she was in middle school. As a Baker student, King was a cheerleader from 2004-2008, and was the team captain her junior and senior years.

While King was a cheerleader at Baker, the team placed in the HAAC competition in 2008 and partook in the national competition.

King said becoming the cheerleading coach has given her a way to give back to the university.

She plans to work on team-building and creating a close, family-like atmosphere within the squad. King also wants to get the group ready for competitions early on in the season.

“(The cheerleaders) are a high-spirited and dedicated team,” said King.

King said she sees great talent in the freshmen additions to the squad and they could become good leaders in the future.
