If you want to know the value of a second, ask a hopeful right before sign drop. Drill team girls from all over Texas and even out of state have high hopes of becoming part of the future line of The Kilgore College Rangerettes. Every year the competition gets tougher and the girls hoping for a spot on the prestigious drill team are becoming more competitive and stronger dancers. I was one of these girls who decided to take a chance and endure a week long audition and hope to see my tryout number on the sign in Dodson Auditorium on July 17, 2015. Unfortunately, I was not one of the girls chosen for the 76th line of Rangerettes. Because of this I grew in a much different way, and I now see that timing is everything. On July 12, I headed to Kilgore College filled with mixed emotions and thoughts because it …show more content…
You could feel the nerves and anxiety of all the girls as we waited impatiently for the sign to drop and hopefully reveal our numbers. At that moment, all of us felt the same. Doubting ourselves, yet hoping for the best. I looked over at my roommate I had for the week as the sign fell before I looked at the sign. She immediately started crying and I looked up and did not see her number nor my number, but ultimately I knew my number was not supposed to be up there that year. In the moment everything seemed as if all my hard work had been suddenly take from me, but on the car ride back to my home I was so incredibly thankful and blessed that I was given such an amazing opportunity. I knew then that I had to audition again. The whole process of trying out for Rangerettes helped me grow in ways I never knew possible. I am much more humble and I appreciate everything that’s given to me and never do I take a moment for granted. I am blessed I get to take another year to train and grow and audition for the 77th line of Rangerettes next

“The two opportunities I was able to go to the State Tournament were definitely my highlight moments.” Degler said. “It’s an experience you don’t always get to have, and we had a good group of girls who played hard and it all came together for us, we didn’t know it at the time but it’s something you look back on and remember.”
The second game of the season, Barton College in North Carolina came down to look at the Byrnes Lady Rebels Varsity lacrosse team. I was the only one out of seniors, juniors, and sophomores that they wanted. I really could not believe it. I was already getting looked at by colleges my ninth grade year. The feeling was overwhelming
My time at Camp Green Lake has made me realize the unjust actions of this place. There are many things that need to be fixed and changed. I want to make sure I can convey what’s going on in camp Green lake. Everyday I’m forced to dig holes, and if I don’t I get punished severely.
Audition day came and I made it onto the team. But a couple weeks later I found out that the dance studio closed. I was so bummed out, and I thought that I would never have that opportunity again. But I had hope that I would get the opportunity, and sure enough a new dance studio opened, and I danced competitive for my team last year! That really made me believe that you should never give up on your dreams
The guys from Ohio are quite the group. They come up once a year and stay with my Uncle Buzz. He isn’t my real Uncle but is close enough to be one, so I just call him that. John is one of the four guys that come. He is the kind of guy where he needs to be proven wrong before he admits he is.
Although many special events have happened lately the football game that was played against spring hill was of special events. That bright sunny day at Dierks High school it was homecoming day. As all the girls were dressed up in their elegant dresses blue jeans and t-shirts were what everyone else was wearing. The mums glitter and shined as they walked down the homecoming court their hair all in place.
Parts of rehearsals would pass by being unproductive and even though by the time we needed to perform people weren 't able to tell, it 's hard for me not to wonder how much better we could have been if that time wasn 't wasted. When the date for band position annoucements came along, I knew what I would get and I wasn 't upset at all. When Dr. Kayser annouced the names of the three Drill Sergeants, my heart was bursting with pride. You see, drill sergeant is the highest position one can get in band in which one may also play an instrument. If I had received drum major as I hoped, I would have been more than happy to lead the group, but would have missed dearly being a part of the sound that comes along with the band.
I have had three whole years to think about this. Being the only fourth year returner and last year’s alternate leader, I have dedicated myself to this program in ways that others have not. I have been with this program even with changes in leadership and coaching styles. I have a vast knowledge of what is expected and I am an excellent source when people have questions about stunting, dancing, and cheers because I truly have done it all. This level of dedication has not been easy, however.
I told her to keep it between us and that I would love to help her be the best! Days went on, and I eventually forgot about it. Weeks later, it was brought to my attention that a meeting was being held instead of practice. The JV coach shared that someone leaked the potential requirement and put fear into cheerleaders, who were thinking about not trying out next
The specific incident took place on Homecoming Night, October 11, 2015. I had gone out to dinner with my siblings and I had arrived back at the dorm around 11:30 P.M. It was my good friend Andrea’s birthday that day and Hanna, Emily and I hadn’t done anything for her due to Homecoming events on campus. We were pretty tired from the day’s
After a few hours, it was my group 's turn to go try out. I went in there and nearly froze. I completely embarrassed myself on the dance we had to perform, but when it came to jumps and tumbling I knew I’d make up for it. In the end, I only messed up on the dance. I was so disappointed after leaving, I thought I could have done better.
At the beginning of the next year it was time to begin preparing for the annual T.I. Camp, which everyone, including me, was excited about! After attending T.I. Camp as a participant for two years I decided to send in an application for youth staff, which
My senior year, I asked Liz why she thought I was someone who was fit for the job. She said, “T, I could tell from the minute I met you that you were broken inside and you needed a pickup. I knew you were athletic, but I decided to give you a new obstacle in the athletic field. You’re the strongest, independent person I’ve met and not only I and the coaches are proud of you, but so is the team.” I felt chills run through my body.
I had been looking forward to this event for three years, and now I had to crutch my way on the gym, up to the podium to get my awards, and during our choir’s last show. My summer vacation started off with physical therapy and a half tanned leg; needless to say I learned that sometimes parents do kinda know what they are talking
On a Friday a while back, I got out of school early. I had gotten out to finish packing for Spring Hill. Spring Hill is a tubing resort in Michigan and I was going with my youth group. I finished packing and my mom drove me and Ben Turner over to the church. After waiting for ten minutes we packed the vans and left.
