Sally Kate Zaft
Sally Kate Zaft, daughter of Barbara and Peter Zaft, is a senior at Battle Ground Academy and the captain of the Varsity Cheerleading squad.
Zaft said that for a long time, she didn’t have the courage to try out for cheer. However, this year, she finally decided to take the leap.
When asked what inspires her to train and compete she said, “Training allows me to cheer to the best of my abilities and I love to encourage our teams and help them do their best.”
She said that her biggest role models are her parents, Barbara and Peter.
“They show me that it’s okay to take a risk and if you fail, then just get up and try something else,” she said. “They push me to be my best and accomplish my goals.”
After graduating from BGA this year, Zaft will attend The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. She hopes to enter a field where she can serve others, specifically children.
