The Tyrone Star-Lite Twirlers senior team earned another first place in Bald Eagle on Saturday, March 30th with their show titled Come Sail Away.

The indoor senior team competes in the Independent Regional Twirler division, and was ranked first at the competition and second overall the eleventh week of performances. The team is currently 0.54 points behind Wolfs Performing Arts, another independent team who are Star-Lite’s biggest competitors.

This past Saturday’s performance was an instructor’s dream. There was complete team work, timing, control and finesse. The girls performed a one drop performance and increased their score by three points and took first place.”

The senior team had a one drop show on Saturday, with a score jump of points. It was arguably the group’s best performance of the year so far.

“This past Saturday’s performance was an instructor’s dream. There was complete team work, timing, control and finesse. The girls performed a one drop performance and increased their score by three points and took first place. Above all they all felt good about themselves and their individual performances and that is what makes me proud as an instructor,” said instructor Marcia Fink.

On the 2019 senior group, there are a total of 14 middle and high school students under the direction of Marcia Fink, Kristie Watson, Jessica George and Corinne Creppage. The team practices three times a week for two hours.

With two competitions left in Johnstown and Homer Center before championships in New Jersey, the team continues to work hard.

The 2019 Chapter 11 Championships will be held in Tyrone on April 27th, and Atlantic Coast Championships will be held in Wildwood, New Jersey on May 2nd through May 5th.

“Their performance was the best they have had this season so far. Something clicked and they came out and killed it! It truly was amazing! It brought tears to my eyes and I was beyond proud of how hard they have worked to get to this point in the season,” said instructor Kristie Watson.

The team performs again this Saturday, April 6 at 11:54 in Johnstown.
