Rocklin High Stunt Team

LAST WEEK :  Stunt had a game Last Thursday vs. Whitney at Granite Bay High School. We won by 18-4

THIS WEEK: Stunt had two games on Monday vs. Liberty Ranch and Woodcreek. On Thursday they will play Shasta and Folsom.


At Rocklin High school one of our freshman’s on the stunt team shares this with us,“One of my favorite memories from stunt is when we played whitney the first time and we were tied then went into overtime and sadly they won but then we played them again and we came in super strong and beat them 18-4”

Bella then tells us about what she thinks about the season so far,“The season is going good so far we’ve only only lost a couple of games, I think we are a strong team. We do team dinners for team bonding every other week so we can spend more time together and not just practicing.”

   -Bella McMillin


“First at a stunt game we have 15 mins to warm up then the first half starts and we have four routines per quarter. they have the option of picking a routine 1-6 with level six being the highest.  the first quarter is partner stunts and the team who won the coin toss gets to pick the level. whoever wins gets possession. the next quarter is pyramids. then it’s halftime and you get 10 minutes. the third quarter is tumbling. the last quarter is all quarters combined so you do partner stunts, jumps and tumbling. all those quarters add up to be at max 21 points,i like how it’s cheer but i don’t like how with each ref it’s different the way they judge the routines.”

I like going to our games knowing that if one of us makes a mistake we will point it out, but always be there to pick each other up.”

Question: Favorite part of the season so far and why?

Andrew Price: “[My favorite part of the season] is probably the game against Whitney because it was really intense and there was a big show of students there. My teammates and I were really hyped. We won the game.”

Question: How is the tournament experiences with the team?

Jake Yarbrough: “[The tournament experiences] were really fun. My team is pretty chill. We have done some team bonding together. We just hangout and talk about the games and learn from the mistakes we made. Our first tournament we got second, and our most recent we got around fifth.”

“So at the meet rocklin won by quite a bit yeah we did and it was close for a while but in the later events rocklin just slowly started pulling ahead and Folsom couldn’t come back and it was pretty fun because we hadn’t won very many meets this year due to people being sick or injured and is just a good experience to get a win one thanks.” (Paul Miller)


Paul Miller is recovering from a knee injury that took place a couple of weeks ago. One of the seniors almost fell off the block during senior night. The swimmers were doing their chant when the national anthem starts playing, they said it was really funny.

practice we work on volleys because they are a very important aspect of tennis and we also work on our shots and strokes”
