WAYNE – In late June, Director of Athletics at Wayne State College Mike Powicki announced that Kim Endicott of Wayne has been hired as the head cheerleading coach for the 2020-21 season.
According to a release from the Wayne State Athletics Office, Endicott also announced the Wildcat Cheerleading Team for the 2020-21 season with five returners and 11 newcomers that will make up the team of 16 members.
Powicki stated he is excited to have coach Endicott on board to lead the cheerleading program, “she has already been in critical in moving this program forward and solidifying our most recent recruiting class. I am excited for WSC to make a financial investment to better support and enhance our cheerleading program through coaching, an operating budget and scholarships. A robust and organized cheerleading program can be an incredible asset in supporting and marketing our varsity athletic program.”
Nine freshmen and two sophomores compile the list of 11 newcomers. Sophomores include Amber Adams (Fremont) and Macie Timm (Norfolk) while new freshmen on this year’s team include Madison Anstine (Yankton, S.D.), Zoe Baxter (Lincoln), Cali Gregory (Omaha), Faith Hansen (Cedar Bluffs), Mary Helms (Arlington), Abby Marshall (Columbus), Brittney Palik (David City), Paige Sackschewsky (Waco) and Katelyn Wiegand (Columbus).
Endicott added, “with our five returning cheerleaders and 11 newcomers I’m confident in the direction the program is headed. We have a mix of girls from small and big towns in Nebraska and South Dakota. These girls have experience stunting and tumbling as well as club cheerleading participation. We will be able to put a well-rounded program on the sidelines for our WSC athletes, the campus and community.”
Endicott thanked president Marysz Rames and Powicki for the opportunity to lead the Wayne State College Cheerleading program in this new capacity. Kim Endicott is a graduate of Wayne State College and a former cheerleader for the Wildcats.
