Last night's night cheer banquet didn't just mark the end of a season, but the end of an era. Christy Baeder is retiring from coaching after 18 years. Coach Baeder built the cheerleading program at Hazel Green into a national powerhouse. In the 18 years she coached, Hazel Green made the final round of the UCA National Championship 15 times, bringing home the Championship in 2005 and 2010, and finishing second three other years. More importantly, she has taught the girls that have come through her program to be strong, confident and independent young women. Thank you, Coach Baeder. You will be missed!
