The freshman from this year’s team tryout with the new girls to help them throughout the week.

“We always try to make sure that there is at least one girl that’s been in drill team for a year in each tryout group”, senior Laura Miller said. “The week can be really intimidating, so it’s helpful to have a girl in your group that’s already been through the process.”

The girls will tryout at 4 p.m. Feb. 11 in the dance room on the second floor of the multipurpose building. Results will be the posted roughly an hour after the end of tryouts.
