Much like the athletes on the field, the older cheerladers  get, the harder it is to succeed. One 40 year old cheerleader is proving all the doubters wrong. Here’s the story via WGNO, ” Her name’s Kriste Lewis and she’s making headlines.  At 40 years old, she’s the oldest Saintsation to ever make the squad. “I am 40.  I think I look 40, and I’m proud of that.  I am the most senior Saintsation and the oldest to ever audition,”  she said. “Go for it.  Don’t let age hold you back.  Don’t let feeling like your past your prime, stop you.   If something is bothering you or maybe you have an illness.  Don’t let it hold you back from going after you want.” This is a great story, and gives hope to all those 40 year olds who still want to be cheerleaders.-TO
