Three members of the Maple Mountain High School Drill Team were chosen to audition for the 5A All-State Drill Team.  Ella Conners, daughter of Chris and Amy Conners; Julia Dall, daughter of Colleen Ferrier and Matthew Dall; and Cheyenne Ortiz, daughter of Ryan and Amy Ortiz, represented Maple Mountain at the auditions held on Wednesday, October 21.

Ella is a three-year member of the Ellevés Drill Team.  She is the Drill Mistress for the team this year.  Ella was a “Top Corp” finalist at Epic Dance/Drill Camp this past summer.  

Julia is a three-year member of the Ellevés Drill Team.  She was an Assistant Drill Mistress her junior year and is the President/Head Drill Mistress this year.  Julia was selected as a “Top Corp” finalist at Epic Dance/Drill Camp this past summer. 

Cheyenne is a two-year member of the Ellevés Drill Team.  She is an Assistant Drill Mistress this year.  Cheyenne was a “Top Corp” representative for Maple Mountain at Epic Dance/Drill Camp this past summer.

The auditions were held at Taylorsville High School.  Each 5A school sent three girls to represent their school at the auditions.  There were 51 girls who auditioned.  A cut was made after the girls showed their technique in an advanced across the floor combination in front of a panel of three judges who narrowed it down to 31 girls.  All three Ellevés made the first cut. Those girls were taught an advanced stylized dance and then auditioned it for the judges, who decided which girls made the team.  There were 17 girls who made the final cut.  All three Ellevés made the final cut and were named to the 5A All-State Team. 

The 5A All-State Team will be recognized at the State Drill Team Competition that will be held in February.  Congratulations to these girls for their accomplishments!
