Description:567 S.E.2d 76 (2002) 255 Ga. App. 781 PRILLAMAN v. SARK et al. No. A02A0527. Court of Appeals of Georgia. June 13, 2002. Jeffrey H. Dover, Atlanta, for appellant. Hicks, Casey & Barber, William T. Casey, Jr., Marietta, Lisa K. Whitfield, for appellees. BLACKBURN, Chief Judge. Megan Prillaman appeals the trial court's grant of summary judgment in favor of C. Erik Sark, Matt Cremers, and Southern Cheerleading Academy, Inc. in her negligence action arising from a cheerleading class accident. Prillaman contends that: (1) the trial court erred in determining she assumed the risk of injury and (2) there were genuine issues of fact to be decided by a jury. For the reasons set forth below, we reverse. Summary judgment is proper when there is no genuine issue of material fact and the movant is entitled to judgment as 77*77 a matter of law. OCGA § 9-11-56(c).... Our review of a grant of summary judgment is de novo, and we view the evidence and all reasonable inferences drawn from it in the light most favorable to the nonmovant.
