Ellie Patneaude


Lilja Bjornsson, Staff Writer

Our Glacier Peak cheer leaders are known for their perfect chants and fun tumbling, but behind that is Ellie Patneaude. She is 1 of 4 cheer captains this year however she stands out from the rest.

This cheer season has been “especially difficult” Patneaude says due to a change in coaching as well as the hardships of the pandemic. But Ellie has made the best of these situations, allowing herself to build bonds with her teammates and leading them through these hard times.

Patneaude will be attending Chapman University this coming fall following graduation. Chapman is her dream school, and with good grades and her dedication to cheer she got in.
