Rachel Stewart, a 2003 graduate of Hillcrest High School, has made the 2008 SeaGal squad and will be cheering on the Seattle Seahawks this year. While many of her dancing friends went on to teaching, Rachel wasn't done performing. Rachel has been performing in one way or another since she was 6 years old. She was on various dance teams in Idaho Falls, including Jubilee/Dance Depot and Hillcrest Knightline. She was also a cheerleader for year at Hillcrest and helped the team take a national first place.

Competition is fierce to be an NFL cheerleader. Rachel tried out last year and made it all the way to finals, but didn't make the final squad. Many girls might have given up after not making it, but not Rachel. She went back with a positive attitude and will now be living her dream on the sidelines of Quest Field.
