South Umpqua student lands spot on Oregon State Cheer Team
TRI CITY, Ore. -- One local high schooler made the cut and will be cheerleading for Oregon State University next year.
Megan Boyé of South Umpqua High School says all odds were against her at the NCAA-level tryouts.
It was her goal to be an OSU cheerleader so she learned all of the tumbling requirements this year.
When it came down to performing in front of the judges and public, she didn't expect to make the team.
"Day one I spelled Beavers wrong in the fight song, so I was like ok ... if I make it to day two it will be a miracle," Boyé says, "so I made it to day two and I was like whoa, I have some good karma on my side."
In the fall, Megan will attend weekly practices while studying chemical engineering.
