The team has been practicing every Thursday, sometimes they have an occasional practice on Sundays. “We've started having extra practices throughout the week, and we just keep going over and cleaning up our routines,” said Heiler. Also with those practices they have been performing at football games, assemblies, and other pep events. They will be performing during halftime of the boys basketball game on December 1 in Boone.
The drill team girls will be perform hip hop at 2:10 pm, and pom at 3:53 pm on December 4. Make sure to come out and support the drill girls, as the seniors look to lead them to the top of the podium.
