By Derrick Smith

The Washington High School Warriors cheer team is no stranger to winning state titles. Since 2000, the team has eleven state championships. Peyton Prock says their team chemistry plays a lot into their success.
“I feel like always having a good mindset has led to us being successful,” she stated. “Working together as a team and always pushing ourselves to be the best has led our team to be successful.”
Prock is a senior at Washington, where she is a base and flyer for the cheer team. She is in her sixth season of cheer and says that her favorite moments are the team victories. 
“My highlight while cheering for Washington is winning state twice,” she said. “It is so rewarding knowing how our long practices and hard work pays off in the end. I definitely will never forget the feeling of those wins.”
While she has put in a lot of work and time, Peyton also knows that there were others along the way that helped her. 
“I have to give credit to my amazing coaches,” she said. “They have shaped me into the person I am today and I’m so lucky to have them in my life.
Jeff, Craig, Sheila, and Madison, thank you so much for coaching me for the last six years.”
Another person that has played a big role in Prock’s life would be her mother. 
“My mom is selfless, confident, and one of the strongest people I know. She has definitely shaped me into the person I am today and she is someone I constantly look up to.”
Peyton has been in a lot of classes as a student at Washington, she said that one of her teachers had a big influence on her life. 
“Mrs. Enox was my favorite teacher,” she said. “Not only was she my teacher, she was also someone that I could always come talk to. She really taught me how to not care about the little things.”
Prock is also a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Fish Club, and she serves as the vice president of the National Honor Society.
