Thursday is Staudt's Rising Stars night whereby we salute an area youngster just getting involved in organized sports.
This week's Rising Star is Ava Bogart from Lansing.
She's 8 years old and has been competing since she was 4.
She's a cheerleader with the Wildcats Cheer Pride.
We say, keep up the great work Ava Bogart, tonight's Staudt's Rising Star.
