MKilar Otte

Varsity and Competition Coach

I’m MKilar Otte. I’m from Hays KS. I was a gymnast for 12 years. I cheered from middle school up to college. I cheered at KU for 2 years until I broke my ankle. I ran a boys gymnastics program while in high school. My favorite tumbling pass is a front tuck step out round off backhand spring full.

Jenna Witteman

JV Coach

Hi, my name is Jenna Witteman and I’m excited to be the JV Cheer coach! I am a retired collegiate cheerleader and dancer coming to SME with over 5 years of instructing experience under Universal Cheerleaders Association. I also had the pleasure of coaching at Hays High School during my senior year of college at Fort Hays State University. 

I have a true passion for helping athletes gain confidence in themselves, specifically through the empowering outlet of cheerleading!

While at East, I cheered all four years, was captain my sophomore year, and was on Varsity for two years. I am also a pre-kindergarten teacher at Comanche Elementary School. I look forward to returning to my alma mater and coaching the sport I truly love. Go East, and remember, it’s always great to be a Lancer!
