Let it twirl

Tryouts for the twirl team occurred on April 20th. This year the team had veteran twirlers try out like Clara Shaw and Claire Childers, but they also had a couple new incoming freshmen join the team.

 The girls train all over the summer to be ready for the half-time shows and competitions they have to face in the next season. They train about 6 hours a day every day with the band team. It’s a very rigorous practice routine.  

“I think that it’s going to be a good season because we have a lot of twirlers” said sophomore twirler Kelsey Stirek, “We have 8 girls this year.”

 The twirlers last year went to the state competition and received first place.

“I think we have a chance to go to state and win again just like last year,” Childers said.  

 The girls really like twirling which is why they still do it. “Twirling is fun; you get to twirl and hang out with your friends,” Childers said, “I can’t wait till practice starts.”
