Samantha Nanula is an incoming senior on the varsity cheer squad at Malibu High School
How did you get involved in cheerleading and how did you get started?
In eighth grade, I approached the head coach, Melissa Endino, who was my seventh-grade
math teacher. I did it because of my love for sports, and I liked the social interaction.
What is your favorite thing about cheerleading?
I like getting to watch basketball and football games and spending time with my friends.
What’s your favorite movie?
Thelen McKinna-Worrell is a senior on the Malibu High School swim team.
How did you get involved in swimming and how did you get started?
Before this year, I was a competitive elite surfer. In the fall, I hurt my knee and I wasn’t able to surf. So, I started swimming this year mainly because my parents said I had to do a sport, and I ended up being good at it.
What is your favorite thing about swimming?
My favorite thing about swimming is getting out of the pool after a workout and feeling amazing.
