Emily Stevens is returning to the Coupeville High School sidelines as the Wolves’ new cheer coach.

Stevens, then Emily Norris, competed for Coupeville when it placed first and second in the state in 2006 and 2007.

“I felt like I was so shaped by my time as a cheerleader that when I heard there was an opening, I had to see if I could create that positive experience for others,” she said.

Stevens hopes to develop a program like the one she remembers, one with “dedicated cheerleaders that work hard and are proud to show what they do.”

Her goals for her squad members are “to gain a sense of team and camaraderie; to gain confidence in their athletic skills; to develop resiliency; and to overcome fear, whether it be speaking in front of a group or getting thrown in the air.”
