May 14 — The Lassen High School drill team hosted the annual Grizzliette Show in The Cave Friday, May 3 and saw a huge turnout.
It was standing room only in the gym as the Grizzliettes showcased the routines they performed throughout the year, including the military-style routine that earned them first place in a United Spirit Association competition in February. The Lassen High School cheerleading squad, J and J Performing Arts, House of Dance and the Diamond View Middle School drill team also performed in front of the packed crowd.
Before each routine the Grizzliette’s coach, Shelley Bennett, announced the name of the routine, who choreographed it and the occasion for which it was performed. Impressively, members of the Grizzliettes choreographed a majority of the routines themselves.
More than 350 people attended the show and, according to coach Bennett, the Grizzliettes raised more than $1,000 that will go toward uniform expenses.
“I was so impressed by our turn-out,” Bennett said, “It was wonderful that our local dance studios and drill teams showcased their talent. I hope that those young girls try out to be a Grizzliette some day. Every member of the team worked extremely hard in the weeks prior to the show. I value their time and energy devoted to the drill team. Our seniors will be missed as they are a vital part of our team and have spent the last four years dedicated to making themselves the best they can be.”
The Grizzliettes and their fans are looking forward to another year full of high-energy, talented performances, especially after attending the Grizzliette Show.
