Local Girls Participate in National Competition

On the weekend of July 16th, two local girls, Jillian Smith age 13 and Alli Dennie age 12 traveled to Little Rock, Arkansas to compete in the USTA National Baton Twirling Competition. The girls competed in a variety of events at the beginner and intermediate level. Both girls made it to the podium four times which means they were in the top five of that particular event for their age group. The best place for both girls was with their pairs routine where they received a second place for beginner pairs. Twirlers from all around the United States were at this competition and it was an amazing opportunity for both girls. These girls spent many, many hours practicing to get ready for this event. Both girls are members of Daphne's Dolls in Plymouth and they are also coached by Brenda Minnich from Geneva, Indiana.
