Valley Special

Drill Team members make All Star

   Outstanding performances by Cedarcrest Drill Team members Megan Van Tassel, Kristy Pflugrath, Johanna DeVoe and Kylene Peterson at the All Stars competition at summer camp earned all of them a place in history.
  
   In an unprecedented event, all four members from Cedarcrest who competed in this event were chosen to represent Cedarcrest at a parade performance in Paris, France in December.
   Out of an original 27 participants, eight were chosen for the All Star Team.
  
   Members were allowed 30 minutes to learn a routine and then individually choreograph the last two eight-counts.
  
   The judge's decisions were based on the participant's knowledge of the routine, precision and ability.
  
   Kylene Peterson and Kristy Pflugrath, previous All Star Team members, have the opportunity to perform in either London or Paris.
  
   These girls are all employed and are working hard to raise money for their trip. Fundraising activities may be arranged to assist them in their goal.
