Reese Morgenroth (pictured), 9, performs a cheer stunt at the Cheer Power competition at NRG Stadium. The Horn Elementary fourth grader competed with Houston Cheer Academy and is now with Apex Cheer and Athletics. The competition was based on team routines set to music, including stunts, jumps, tumbling, dancing and cheering. Along with her teammates, Reese practices about six hours each week at the gym, with additional time at home dedicated to stretching and tumbling. The new competition season is about to start, and Reese is working on improving her tumbling and stretching ability. Competing with her friends is Reese’s favorite part of competitive cheer.
