GREEN RIVER — The University of Wyoming (UW) cheer team will be adding Green River High School (GRHS) senior Darica Meeks to their squad next year.

The decision was an easy one for Meeks who will cheer for her home state Wyoming teams — something she has always dreamed of doing.

“I have always been drawn to UW. I wanted to cheer for my home state,” Meeks said.

During a visit to the school and tryouts, the team felt like family and current members of the team were supportive and welcoming. Meeks said she’s most looking forward to making new friendships and creating memories with her future team.

Among her favorite memories while a member of the GRHS cheer team was taking the team’s first trip to nationals where they performed strong. It was an experience she’ll never forget.

“We hit perfect routines and it was the best feeling,” Meeks said.

While at UW, she plans to study elementary education where she will then pursue a career after graduating.
