Bardstown senior Haylee Dennison is this week’s nominee for Student-Athlete of the Week. Dennison plans to attend Western Kentucky University to study nursing and try out for the Hilltopper cheerleading squad.

Dennison, a four-year varsity cheerleader with a 3.14 GPA, is the captain of the Bardstown squad and plans on going to Western Kentucky University and trying out for the Hilltoppers’ cheer team. Dennison also is a pole vaulter for the Tiger track team, and is involved in several clubs on the Bardstown campus.

Kentucky Standard sports editor Peter W. Zubaty caught up with Dennison to ask a few questions.

 

PZ: What do you plan to study at WKU and why?

HD: I’ve wanted to be a nurse for as long as I can remember now, and that’s what I will be studying to be when I attend WKU in the fall.

PZ: What’s your favorite TV show?

HD: Grey’s Anatomy! I’m a little obsessed.



PZ: What got you started in cheerleading, and what makes you want to continue it in college?

HD: My mom got me started in cheerleading when I was about 5 years old, cheering for the rec teams. I’ve been cheering ever since. Cheerleading has always been such a big part of my life it’s hard to imagine it without it. I love being involved in everything, and I feel joining the Hilltoppers cheer squad will keep me involved in school as I move on to college.

PZ: Do you have a favorite pre-game/competition meal?

HD: Definitely Subway. It’s healthier than most fast food and easy to eat on the bus for away games.

PZ: What does being a leader mean to you?

HD: Being a leader, to me, means being someone who leads by example. Being someone that people can look up to, and count on for anything.

PZ: What do you enjoy most about cheerleading?

HD: Finally getting to show off our routine and stunts we work so hard to perfect!

PZ: What’s your favorite song/album? Who’s your favorite band/artist?

HD: I couldn’t pick a favorite band or artist. I like the most random variety of songs!

PZ: How tough is it juggling schoolwork, cheerleading and other activities?

HD: Sometimes I feel like I need a break from everything. And then when I do get a break, I find myself getting bored easily. So actually, I like juggling them all.

PZ: What do you do when you have some precious free time away from school and sports?

HD: I sleep in my free time, a lot. And then spend any time I have left with my amazing family and friends.
