Blaine High School cheerleader Ashley Delligatti made the Washington State University cheer team. She has wanted cheer in college ever since her parents signed her up to cheer as a 6-year-old.
“They put me into it not knowing what to expect, but I took it seriously,” she said.
Delligatti also had opportunities to cheer at the University of Louisville and Texas Tech, but felt WSU was the best fit.
“I chose it mostly because the cheer program is probably the best in the state,” she said. “It has beautiful facilities and I love the atmosphere and the coach.”
Deligatti cheered for Blaine High School and she cheers with the Vancouver All Stars, a competition cheer team in Vancouver.
The All Stars just finished fifth in the international open small coed category at the 2017 United States All Star Federation’s Cheerleading Worlds competition in Florida last month.
