Cheer squad debunks stereotypes

Zionsville — Middle school is a difficult time for many children, but the cheerleading coach at Zionsville West Middle School is helping one girl feel much more comfortable.

AnnCatherine Heigl, an eighth grader at Z’West, was born with Down syndrome. Her mother, Laura, said she is high functioning but caught the family by surprise when she said she wanted to be a cheerleader.

“She can be very determined at times, and she’ll work hard to accomplish anything,” Laura said. “We had a lot of discussion about it, but the bottom line was she wanted to cheer. You can only protect your child from so much; so, we decided to let her cheer.”
