On September 7, 2012, MMHS played Springville in football. We hosted a pre-game party for the Springville drill team. We decided to decorate cupcakes. So, some of the girls brought cupcakes, others brought frosting, and then others brought different kinds of toppings to put on the cupcakes.
It turned out fun and I think both teams had fun! I took a few pics, but I didn't ever get a group shot of both teams together! Darn it!
Getting their cupcakes and frosting them.
MMHS Elleves are having a good time!
Our performance that night was "Sassy". It is a routine that we learned at PDC camp. I really like the choreography of this routine. It goes well with the music and is really fun. The team likes it too and so that makes a difference in their performance!
Here they are before the performance.
Fun pose - we wore the silver dresses. I always like them to wear them for one football routine because they look so good out on the field! We did add a maroon flower to wear in their hair.
These are a few of the pics that Jeff Pocaro took during their performance. This one is Laney - this is during the part in the music that goes, "sassy as she wants to be". Doesn't she look sassy?
End pose - Sassy!
A couple weeks later and it was Homecoming. The week began with a school carnival. Clubs were asked to help with different carnival games. I volunteered the drill team to do a cake walk. Kendrick came with me to help get it set up and of course, he had to have a cupcake!
Eating his cupcake!
Later he got his face painted! Audrey and Courtney Eckhart, who tend Kendrick, were at the carnival and they asked if they could take Kendrick around to the booths, so that is why he got his face painted.
He liked it and was so good to hold still!
Our "golden eagle" cake walk!
Yes we let kids of all ages participate!
The Elleves also had a fun time getting their arms painted!
My three-year seniors at the Homecoming game!

This is all of my seniors - Lindsey, Melissa, Shalee, and Catherine.
We performed a hip hop routine from BDT camp called "Fire Ball". It was fun and they performed it well. We wore the gold jackets again. Another outfit that shows up well on the field!
Here they are just before the performance!
Shalee Hiskey - love how her hair is! :)
I liked this part in the routine.
Fun moves in the choreography!
Cool moves too!
Then a week later we had another home game. We decided to teach the team a routine that the officers had learned at the BDT officer retreat. It was called "Commander" and was taught by Travis Lake. It was a very cool routine and stylized. A lot more "meat" to this routine than the other dances we had been performing from the camps.
We had to work really hard and clean it with a lot more detail than the other routines, plus we didn't have as much time. But, the team pulled it off. Here's some pics from the performance.
We wore the good ol' pink/yellow tops.
Look how these people stare.
The DJ is my bodyguard!
Well, September was a busy one. Only one more home football game in October. We've had a great football performance season so far this year!
