DERBY DOLL TRYOUTS by Allison Bena
On Saturday, April 13th the Derby Dolls had their tryouts for incoming dolls and also officer tryouts for upperclassman. There were many ways incoming dolls could prepare for tryouts. There were clinics that Mrs. Jenna held along with the derby doll prep class that you could take your freshman year. Kennedy Klatt said, “The tryout clinic for the upcoming babydolls was very effective, even for the girls who have danced previously.
Lauren Drabek, who is going to be a junior next year, said that at tryouts last year she went in nervous and came out feeling confident that she did good. She commented that, “Being a derby doll has taught me a lot and everyone on the team has helped me grow as a person.” Almost everyone thought tryouts went really good even though everyone was nervous. We will have a great derby doll team to cheer on our wonderful football team this coming school year.
Congratulations to the new derby doll members! Sydney Acosta, Bradejah Bradshaw, Raven Colwell, Teara Cooper, Kaitlyn Galvan, Elizabeth Garza, Aiyana Gonzalez, Natalie Gracia, Aviah Jones, Trianna Manzano, Cambrie Priesmeyer, Kimberly Reyna, Dharma Sabrsula, Brianna Shanks, Hannah Sutton, Makayla Valenzuela, and Makayla Vasquez.
