After a rigorous tryout process, the award-winning Highland Belles drill team announced 23 new members for its 2013-14 roster. The new team was selected after hopefuls and returning Belles committed to a week-long training process, culminating in a tryout last Saturday led by third-party, independent judges from within the drill team community.
Front row: Leslie Hudson, Maddie Basso, Katherine Cornell, Olivia Gruber, EJ Turner, Caroline Gates, Flora Kate Richards, and Jenny Beth Humann
Middle row: Samantha Walker, Jackie Joyner, Shanley Huckabee, Emily Watson, Gaby Orr, Caroline Robertson, Emily Carvell, Kate Thompson, and Grace Sloan
Back row: Charlotte Fitzpatrick, Landry Arnold, Landry Myers, Avery Mercurio, Maryellen Salter, and Madison Taylor
The 2013-2014 Highland Belles will begin their workout and off-season training in January alongside the current team. Their first team performance will be in late spring.
