The team, which consists of 30 members ranging from freshmen to senior students, are required to tryout at the beginning of each year. Members are selected for the team based on their skills and abilities. In March of 2019, the specialized team competed in two North Texas competitions, Crowd Pleasers DFW Showcase and Dallas Grand Finale, where they received first place in their division for Kick and Pom.
Most recently, the Tigerettes and the elite team traveled across the country to Branson, Missouri for their annual trip. The four-day adventure was packed with exciting experiences including performing as the opening act at Branson’s most popular show, The Haygoods, at the historic Clay Cooper Theater. After the performance, the team received an opening performance trophy and many compliments from the crowd.
“To see the girls perform so well in front of such a large audience makes me very proud,” said Sharraine Williams, Spirit Director of the Tigerettes. “I could tell the girls were proud of themselves and that is what means the most to me.”
