Isabella Heupel- Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – LRHS Mustang Majorettes are the focal point of the marching band’s pregame show. Standing in the middle of the field, the girls twirl batons to entertain the crowd at football games.
A majorette is a dancer who twirls and performs stunts with a lightweight baton, whether as a solo, in a group, or in a marching band.
LRHS didn’t always have majorettes. Three years ago, they started performing at the football games and even twirling fire on the field.
“Twirling for a high school team has been my dream since I started twirling,” said senior Shannon Ray. “Starting a line will leave a unique legacy on the school, which I am very proud of.”
The majorettes perform routines to songs such as, “Cheeseburger in Paradise” and “The Horse” played by The Marching Mustangs.
Twirler freshman Tiffany McCoy said, “Doing baton at football games is so much fun because we get to show people something different.
“I am really excited for the upcoming football games in the next three years,” shared McCoy.
