Happy 2019 Texas Twirl Fans!
The new year always brings memories of the year that has past, and so much hope for the year to come.
Texas Twirling had many amazing moments in 2018... the CMMOA title coming home to Baylor, 5 Texas Twirlers winning the modeling in their National Pageant, 5 baton twirlers competing in Miss Texas, etc. With the fantastic talent that is developing in this State, we cannot wait to see what 2019 brings for #TeamTexas!
For this blog, we have continued to live out our mission to help keep our sport and our community going strong by bringing us together. It just makes every moment of time spent on these posts worth it when we go to contests and see twirlers from all over Texas that may not have known who the others were taking pictures together and enjoying the friendships that come with twirling. #TeamTexas is amazing!
To celebrate, here is our annual Goodbye 2018 post to take a look back at the past year of this blog's existence and recognize those that have helped contribute to our mission...
