Yocum named Ranger cheerleading coach

Hamilton Local Schools announced that Grace Yocum (pictured here, far left) is the new head cheerleading coach. She assumed responsibilities on April 12.

An alumni of Hamilton Township High School, Yocum served as a varsity cheer captain during her time as a student and spent the last three years coaching middle school and serving as a high school varsity assistant. During her time coaching, she has been nominated for Ohio middle school/junior high coach of the year by Nfinity Athletics.

She is set to graduate from Ohio Dominican University in the spring of 2025 with a double major in PK-5 education and K-12 intervention. She has aspirations to attain a master’s degree in educational leadership, and is committed to the growth and development of her student-athletes both on and off the field.

One of Yocum’s objectives as head cheerleading coach is to integrate more life skills and core values into the program. She emphasizes the importance of goal setting, both short and long term, not only in cheerleading but also in the classroom and in students’ lives overall. District officials said her dedication to nurturing well-rounded individuals aligns perfectly with the values of the Hamilton Local School District.

“After careful consideration, we believe Coach Yocum will be a perfect fit as the new leader of our cheerleading program,” said Hamilton Township Schools Athletic Director Matt Thompson. “She has an excellent rapport with the staff and students of our district, and we are looking forward to seeing her excel in this role.”
