NEW MIDDLETOWN, OH – The tradition of being a Tiger at Springfield carries with it a ton of pride and joy but one such student-athlete embodies that attitude more than most. Lexi Wonner is someone that “bleeds” orange and black in all aspects of her life. Lexi is able to play for Springfield on the soccer and track teams, but also showcase her cheer talents as one of the members of the cheerleading squad at all Springfield games in football and basketball. Not only does Lexi excel in sports at Springfield, she is also a rodeo queen and partakes in many events involving the rodeo.

This past soccer season, Lexi was able to help guide the Tigers to a perfect regular season record and a district semi-finals appearance. She was also able to cheer on the Tigers football team who made a trip to the Division VI state championship game and Wonner is currently cheering on the boys basketball team who is in the middle of their own playoff run as they will welcome Champion to town on Tuesday night.

YSN’s own, Steve Leslie, was able to catch up with Lexi this week via video chat to discuss how COVID effected her soccer, cheer, and past plus future track seasons, how cheerleading has been different for her this season due to COVID guidelines of only allowing for home games to be cheered at, how YSN has been able to help her and her family throughout the year and multiple sports seasons, what we can expect from her and the Lady Tigers in the upcoming track and field season, and a rapid fire question session to learn more about what makes Lexi the student-athlete that she is!

Take some time to find out all of that and much more in this exclusive interview with Springfield Tigers multi-sport senior athlete, Lexi Wonner!
