February Female Athlete of the Month: Jenna Trolinger


Senior Jenna Trolinger cheers on the crowd at a recent boys basketball game. Trolinger is one of the team’s flyers, which means she is hoisted into the air to do stunts.


Senior Jenna Trolinger is our Female Athlete of the Month. Trolinger has been a varsity cheerleader for all four years of her high school career. This year she was the team captain for the Carlisle Cheerleading team leading them to the PIAA state tournament. She was also able to overcome an early-season injury that affected her during the football season. Trolinger was also able to cheer on both of her brothers (Justin Trolinger and Matthew Trolinger) who also went to CHS during her 4 years and played on the football team. The Herd cheerleader plans to continue her academic career at Shippensburg University to major in elementary education.

A: It has been an outlet where I can go and be around my closest friends and do what I love.
