ODESSA, Texas (Big 2/Fox 24) – After a year of hard work and dedication the Mojo Twirlers have their sights set on bringing home the gold.
Their coach, Pam Brewer, said never giving up paid off when they found out they were heading to state this May.
“I will remember them as the group that never gave up. I put things out there this year that we had never done before and these girls were up for the challenge and I appreciate that” she said.
For one senior on the squad, this year means so much more and she’s ready to leave it all on the mat.
“I just want to say that these girls have basically become my family and it’s been a good year. I’m excited because I get to spend my senior year at state with this amazing team and I’m also nervous because, again, it is my senior year and I just have a little anxiety,” said Callie Johnson.
Because of COVID-19 the girls have been quarantined and have only been together a few times, one time even having to re-arrange a routine the day of a competition because one of the girls was exposed.
Like any challenge a team faces they came out on the other side stronger. “I feel like because we had to go through so many restrictions we’ve definitely gotten closer and had to work around the complications,” said Johnson.
With their hearts full and minds ready to get back to work their coach has a final message before taking center stage.”This is all about them, I love them all and I appreciate everything that they do; they’re amazing,” said the coach.
