From the President’s Pen
Dear KML Family,
As we recognize Christ’s great sacrifice for us, our eyes focus on the tool of his torture, the cross. We are amazed that he would endure such suffering for us. But then our eyes go beyond the cross to the heavenly home waiting for us because of that sacrifice. The eternal life we see in our future frames our daily troubles and challenges as manageable. We know we have a God who takes care of us until that eternity is ours. May his saving work be our foundation as we strive to live as his children every day.

KML Cheer Earns TWO State Championships!
The KML Varsity Cheer Team concluded a successful competitive season at the WACPC (Wisconsin Association of Cheer/Pom Coaches) 2022 Wisconsin State Championships on February 19, at the Oshkosh (formerly Menominee Nation) Arena.
The team started their day performing their “traditional” routine in the competitive Large Varsity division. KML had an energetic, sharp and zero deduction performance, their strongest of the season. Their clean, high-energy routine earned the highest cheer/dance score of the day 44.1/45 out of ALL the teams (37 varsity teams) and the program a State Championship title in this talented division.
The team concluded the day performing their award-winning Game Day routine. The loud, supportive crowd helped the team perform their best routine of the season, earning the highest overall score, regardless of team size, and their 10th straight Game Day State Championship. This is only the third year in program history the team has competed two routines and the very first time KML has earned a State Championship in both divisions. This is a rare and extraordinary accomplishment. The program has been blessed to earn a total of 16 State Championships since 2002. To God be the glory!
KML Cheer Takes the Prestigious Nationals Stage
The KML Varsity Cheer Team competed for only the second time in program history at the Universal Cheerleaders Association National High School Cheerleading Championships (NHSCC). The 2022 UCA NHSCC was held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports in Orlando, Florida. The team earned a bid to the National event by qualifying in the December Virtual Competition. KML competed in a very talented Game Day Large-Varsity Non-Tumbling division.
On Friday, February 11, the team earned a 7th place qualifying spot in the Semifinals with a clean and energetic routine in the preliminary round. The team returned to the mat on Saturday for their semifinal performance. Only the top 8 teams would move on to the Finals later that day. The team earned an outstanding 10th place finish in the semifinals, just 1.0 point out of a qualifying spot.
The team was proud and honored to compete against some of the best programs in the Nation, and so very thankful to have the opportunity to represent KML at this prestigious event. To God be the glory!
