Hello Texas Twirl Fans!
Another great weekend of twirling all over Texas, and we could not love it more! That also means it is time for another Friday Night Lights Feature Interview with one of our fabulous Texas High School twirlers.
This Weekend’s FNL Feature is the New Braunfels High School Feature Twirler!
We asked her what her favorite part about marching season, and she said of course it was performing on the field, and when the season is over, the part she will miss the most is performing for the crowds.
Now that we have learned about the school with the coolest mascot ever, let’s learn more about Katy!
Competition Level: Intermediate
Katy has been twirling for 7 years and works with coaches Tori Mays and Catherine Watters. The competition title she is the proudest of was when she won her Show Twirl at AYOP. Her favorite field trick is a high toss ground roll. In baton twirling she has been most inspired by Savannah Miller. After High School she hopes to go to college and twirl, and then she wants to train to become a pilot.
Favorite Color – Any Blue
Favorite Movie – “Grown Ups”
Favorite Music – R&B
Favorite Book – The Chicken Soup for the Soul books
"Forget the risk and take the fall. If it is what you want, then it is worth it all!"
When she is not twirling, she loves to…
“Hang out with my friends, dance and be with my animals.”
Something most people might not know about her...
“I was born in Russia.”
The #1 non-twirling life skill she has learned from baton twirling is…
“If you want it you have to work for it, because nothing is given or handed to you.”
Most Memorable Advice from your Coach…
"Don’t be stupid."
“Practice, smile, showmanship, and just have fun!”
Favorite thing to do as a Baton Twirler…
“I love meeting new people in competitions and also meeting new twirlers from different schools.”
Funniest moment as a Baton Twirler…
“Last year the other twirler and I did this thing with the band where we run on the field and then pose, but one time when we posed, she slipped on the turf and fell on her face. When she got up, we were both dying laughing.”
Best School Tradition…
Best Band Tradition or Inside Joke…
We want to give a big thank you to Katy for doing our Instastory Takeover and showing us a little about her Game Day. We wish Katy the best of luck the rest of this season, and GO UNICORNS!
Each season this blog likes to get to know many of our awesome Texas twirlers a little better by learning about their experiences. We will be meeting many HS twirlers on Fridays throughout the season with the Friday Night Lights Features and discovering more about our Texas Collegians with the Collegiate Twirler Spotlights during the week. We will also be having many of our High School and Collegiate twirlers take over our Social Media Story for their Game Days, and we may even have some special Live moments!
