MONT ALTO, Pa. – The Penn State Mont Alto cheerleading squad has named 
Kaitlyn Mumma (Greencastle, Pa./James Buchanan) its Cheerleader of the 
Month for January.

The award is based on nominations from the team and given to a cheerleader who stands out in her efforts for the month.

Mumma, a sophomore back/base, was nominated by her teammates for her 
leadership and guidance, and the consistency she provides for stunts.

“Kaitlyn has been something of a quiet leader, but her teammates and I 
have really seen her coming into her own,” said head coach Jennifer 
Deinlein. “When she speaks, she’s offering thoughtful guidance. Her 
experience and consistency as a backspot is helping our newer stunters 
develop, and she also has the versatility to base – and even occasionally fly!”
