Making the Cut: Drill Team
September 21, 2019
The PHS Drill Team is the school dance team. The JV coach, Ms. Riggs has been leading her team for going on six years. Discussing this year’s tryouts, Ms. Riggs said, “We get a wide variety of talent. Every now and then we run into people who try out and just exceed expectations.”
For Ms. Riggs, the coaching staff wants “students who are willing to put in the work it takes to compete on a competitive dance team.” She explained, “That typically includes 4-5 practices a week, technique class once a week, along with performances for football, soccer, and basketball throughout the year.”
Both Varsity and JV are going to the Lindbergh Invitational and the Fort Zumwalt North Invitational. Varsity also goes to the National Competition every year.
