Our Athlete of the Week this week is Sophia Solimine. Sophia is a senior at Allatoona and has been on the varsity cheer team all four years. “She always has a positive attitude, amazing skills that she never holds back for her team, and always encourages other teammates,” says coach Anette Gratzer. “I always encourage my teammates and lift them up even when we are struggling most.” After high school, Sophia plans to go to Georgia Southern University and major in biology and hopes to become a dermatologist physician assistant. Sophia’s advice to younger players is, “if you want to be the best at something, you have to work hard at it. To truly be good at something, you have to do 10,000 reps of it both physical and mental, and that’s when you HAVE it.”
