Hillsboro High School's Maddisen Mikkelsen has signed her letter of intent to compete with the Heidelberg University Stunt & Cheer team next season.

According to Heidelberg’s website (, “STUNT has received approval as an NCAA emerging sport for women in Division I, II and III. The sport combines the concepts of competitive cheer and tumbling with a traditional school-against-school competition format. 

“STUNT is broken down into nine conferences and one independent division. Heidelberg is a member of the Mid America East Conference, which includes three other schools – Muskingum, Alma and Olivet.”
