The McKinney High School Marquette Officers, under the direction of Mrs. Amy Neely and Mrs. Addrianne Stephens, performed phenomenally at the “Crowd Pleasers” dance officer camp held earlier in June. The camp was extremely competitive with over 41 officer lines in attendance.
The McKinney Officers were placed in the top 10 of the 41 officer lines competing. This is the highest honor bestowed at “Crowd Pleasers” officer camp. The Marquettes wowed the judges and crowd with their home routine.
The Officers, Captain Lauren McGee, First Lieutenant Cera Taylor, and Lieutenants Dakota Bartucci, Lauren Umphress, and Lindsey Lovett, received blue ribbons. Individual blue ribbons were awarded to Dakota Bartucci, Lindsey Lovett, Cera Taylor, and Lauren McGee for their effort in advanced dancing. The officers placed in the elite circle and also earned blue ribbons on all evaluations, which included Superior Rating and Performance Award for their home routine, Elite Circle of Performers, and Top Ten Scoring Line Officers.
The McKinney Marquette Line Officers attended “Dance Line” officer camp also held earlier in June. The Line Officers represented our team and school extremely well. The Line Officers received a Division I rating, meaning that they received a 90 and above from all judges for all evaluations. Congratulations to Line Officers Laurel Lesku, Kristina Smith, Summer Moseley and Emily Warren for auditioning and being selected to perform with Dance Line, an elite performance group.
Congratulations to all ladies on all of your hard work and dedication. It is going to be an amazing year!
