Georgia Sayed was introduced into cheer by her best friend Grace Lipetska, who talked her into doing it the second day of tryouts. Lipetska told Sayed that she should try out to see if she would make the team, and even though she wasn’t there for all three days of tryouts, Sayed still made the team. Sayed also wanted to do cheer instead of basketball because she wanted something new for her senior year so she could start with a clean plate and do a sport that doesn’t bring as much stress. She likes cheer but she also doesn’t because she likes the free time and how it’s something new to her but she likes the intensity in basketball and how she’s always been active. One thing Sayed was surprised about was how short the cheer practices were and how much extra free time she had. In basketball, there were two hours of practice every single day and had no break. Cheer to her was a nice way to take a break and think about what they did at cheer practice and learn the cheers by themselves.

“A difference between cheer and basketball was the atmosphere, it’s a lot different cheering on the sideline and the intensity is a lot less because basketball is when every second can change,” Sayed said.

Basketball comes naturally to Sayed because she’s been doing it her whole life, and cheer is something completely different to her. Cheer has eight counts, therefore she must keep counting in her head to make sure she’s doing all the moves at the same time, where basketball is when you get the ball and go running down the court.

“Basketball was hard to keep up with homework and school work but cheer is a lot easier,” Sayed said.
