Blackwell’s Malorie Prince Athlete Spotlight Presented by Stillwater Medical Blackwell

Athletes in all sports have at least one thing in common.They all work hard to be successful and reach their fullest potential. Malorie Prince is a sophomore at Blackwell High School. As a cheerleader, she says that it takes more than just hard work. 
 “I wouldn’t say that I’m super successful in what I do,” she said. “But, from where I started to where I am, it’s taken a lot of perseverance and patience and a positive attitude.”

Along with all the time and effort that she has invested, Malorie has had some positive role models in her life that have helped her become who she is.

“My biggest influencers are for one, my coach, Kelsey Jackson,” Prince said. “From the very beginning she hasbelieved in me and given me the chance to prove myself worthy instead of giving up on me and pushing me aside. Also, my mom is also a big influence on me because she’s the one that pushes me everyday to be the best that I can be and to always try harder.”

Malorie also has a couple of other people that are behind the scenes but they also play a big role in the team’s success.

“Our cheer coach assistants deserve a shout. They are Masie Peetoom and Nikole Flyingout. They have been the best supporters for all the cheerleaders and they put their time and effort in to help make us better too. They deserve a lot of recognition because they put just as much time into the things we do as we do ourselves.”  

When she steps out to cheer and wears the Blackwell uniform, Malorie knows that she is doing it for more than just herself.

“It’s a big deal to me,” Malorie stated. “It means that when others see me representing my school that I’m the reflection of that. When I do something positive or great for my community, it makes my school better and when people see me do good they should know it’s my school that made me that way. My teachers taught me to be the way that I am today and they’ve helped me make the community and school better through their teaching.”
