SAN ANTONIO (July 8, 2020) – Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) held its inaugural competitive cheer and dance team signing day earlier this month.
Head Coach Crystal Brock commented, "We had 13 athletes sign on June 13 at our signing day committing to our OLLU Saints Spirit Family. Each student-athlete is eager to begin working on creating a legacy of which OLLU faculty, staff and alumni will be proud. Each athlete has a passion to motivate and represent Saints athletics with dignity, class and sportsmanship."
Among the 13 who signed was Autumn Paredes from Laredo, Texas. The junior will join the Competitive Cheer team. She most recently attended Julieta and Frank Staggs Academy. She earned the Study Abroad Scholarship, Leadership Award and Dean Merit Scholarship, among other accomplishments. Paredes was awarded the Dean's Scholarship and SALE Scholarship at OLLU.
Paredes was a member of the Saints Cheer Club last year.
Her hobbies are working out and painting. Paredes' athletic role model is Jeremiah Harris and her favorite motto is "Once you really know yourself, can't nobody tell you nothing about you," (Megan Thee Stallion).
