Her love for Randolph and the sport of cheer combined with the desire to develop young ladies through this sport is unmatched. We are very excited to see her have a great impact on our overall cheer program.”

Coach May cheered for Randolph in high school and her coaching philosophy is to create within her athlete’s responsibility, sportsmanship, respect, self-confidence, accountability, discipline, correct technique and a desire to compete. She feels it is her role as a coach to help her student-athletes achieve these values as well as provide a safe environment and positive sport experience, so they can attain their full potential.
