Shalee Hiskey and Jamie Topham represent Maple Mountain on the all-state drill team.

Two members of the Maple Mountain High School Drill Team were named to the 4A All-State Drill Team. Shalee Hiskey, daughter of Lana and Bruce Hiskey and Jamie Topham, daughter of Michelle and Greg Topham were chosen to represent Maple Mountain at the 4A All-State Drill Team Auditions. There were 48 girls who auditioned for 20 spots on the all-state team.

Shalee is a senior and a three-year member of the Ellevés Drill Team. She was an Assistant Drill Mistress her junior year and is the President of the team this year. Shalee was a “Top Corp” finalist at Basic Dance Training Camp this past summer. 

Jamie is a junior and a two-year member of the Ellevés Drill Team. She is one of the Assistant Drill Mistresses for the team this year. Jamie was also a “Top Corp” finalist at Basic Dance Training Camp this past summer.

 The auditions were held on Wednesday, October 10 at Taylorsville High School. Each 4A school sent three girls to represent their school at the auditions. The girls were taught a short dance combination and then auditioned it in front of a panel of three judges who decided which girls made the team.

 The 4A All-State Team will be recognized at the State Drill Team Competition that will be held at UVU in February. Congratulations to these girls for their accomplishments!
