The Cedarcrest Drill Team scored big at a UDA (Universal Dance Association) camp July 15-18.
The team won a third place trophy for their home routine. They have been practicing all summer and pulled off a great performance. The team also earned a superior trophy for the outstanding work they had done and the great attitudes they had. They took home a total of four spirit sticks, the most possible at camp, and they were very pleased.
"The team is going to be awesome this year, we're ready to work hard and be superior!" says Lieutenant Public Relations Mia Robinson.
For individuals, Lieutenant Secretary Shauna VanTassel took home the first place trophy and Co-Captain Gwen Kearns received third place for the advanced drill downs. First year member Kelly Pflugrath took first place for the beginner drill downs.
Also, Captain Mallory Taylor tried out and made it on the All Star team and has a chance to go to Paris.
At camp, the girls were required to learn a total of three routines and perform them for the instructors who judged them. There are a total of three different kinds of ribbons‹blue, or superior; red, which is excellent or second; and white, which is lowest. The team together earned a total of 86 superior ribbons and seven excellent ribbons, an outstanding achievement.
The team is looking forward to the coming year. The public is invited to come and watch these terrific girls and their award-winning team at the Cedarcrest home football games starting in September.
