Kicking off her 7th season as a Minnesota Vikings Cheerleader, MVC Saral has extensive experience that has prepared her for leading our team this season. She has cheered at the Hubert. H. Humphrey Metrodome, TCF Bank Stadium at the University of Minnesota, U.S. Bank Stadium, the Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton, OH as well as the Wembley Stadium in London on behalf of the Minnesota Vikings. She was a Glamour Captain of the MVC for two seasons and is beginning her third season as a team captain. She has represented the MVC in Guam, London, Hawaii, Mexico, and Kwaj, and has been a Top 10 Finalist numerous times at auditions. An Edina native, Saral says she has always been the biggest fan of the Minnesota Vikings and she had been looking forward to auditioning for a very long time before deciding to do so! She's respected by her teammates for her strong work ethic and unwavering commitment to improvement each and every season she returns. Her number one goal for the team this season is to be a team of excellence and to be the very best at everything we do. When she's not cheering, she works full time while also maintaining the two small businesses that she owns. As for what she's looking forward to this season, she says she's most excited to get the fans on their feet and cheer on the Vikings all the way to the home hosted Super Bowl! She has been a phenomenal leader on the team since first making MVC, and there is one person in particular whose leadership style Saral admires. "I think the ultimate role model for leadership would be our Director, Tami Hedrick. She always leads with grace and continues to find new ways to motivate us. Always inspiring and makes you want to take action, while lifting you up and empowering you to do so!"
