Melissa Durtschi, Aubrey Finch, Makayla Wilson, and Kaitlynn Blood show their medals from the drill down.

The MMHS Ellevés competed at the Murray Classic Drill Team Competition at Murray High School on January 14, 2012. They placed 1st in Hip Hop, 2nd in Lyrical, 3rd in Military, 3rd in Dance, and 4th in Character. There were nine 4A schools competing at the competition. The Ellevés also received two other trophies for specialty awards. The judges also chose them as the team with "Exceptional Technique," and they were voted on by all the teams competing in the competition as the team with the "Best Sportsmanship."  

Maple Mountain also took four of the top five places in the 4A Drill Down. Kaitlynn Blood won 5th place, Makayla Wilson won 4th place, Melissa Durtschi won 2nd place, and Aubrey Finch won 1st place. Congratulations drill team!

The drill team will now prepare for the Region 8 Drill Team Competition, which will be held on January 26, 2012 at Salem Hills High School at 6 p.m. Make plans now to come support the Ellevés!
