About Us

Challis Cross & Savannah Drake

SuperNova Athletics was founded in April 2020 by The Drake and Cross Families.

Savannah Drake has been coaching and cheering for her entire life. She has won several individual national titles including "Best Cheerleader". As a former Stephen F. Austin Cheerleader and All Star Cheerleader in Kingsville, Tx, Savannah has gained ample experience coaching tumbling and cheer. She is grateful to her mentors Dr. Eden Hernandez and Gina Butler who introduced her to cheer, and helped her flourish as a cheerleader and coach. Savannah and husband, Chase, have two precious children, Caden and Aurora. Savannah's love for cheer has been passed down to her own shining star, Aurora. 

Challis Cross started coaching cheer and tumbling as a high school Sophomore ballerina. With a strong background in competitive dance, Challis pushed to gain experience in competitive cheer and tumbling coaching. As an adult Challis pursued her career coaching and went on to win multiple titles with her All Star Prep teams. Challis and her husband Johnathan have 3 daughters Cadence, Carah and Carlee. Challis' eldest Cadence has been featured on Cheer Cast, Black Girls Cheer and Lower Levels Cheer social media sites.
