The Highland Belles drill team added 29 members to their 2015-16 squad during tryouts last weekend, bringing the squad’s total to 64 students.

The rigorous tryout included a week of training that culminated in a performance led by third-party judges. The new Belles will begin their workouts and off-season training in January alongside the current Belles. Their first performance will be in late spring.
