The world-famous Kilgore College Rangerettes named new officers after tryouts Aug. 18 at the annual Rangerette Show-Offs.
Twenty-one sophomores tried out for the coveted five officer positions in front of a packed house at Dodson Auditorium.
The five officers selected to lead the team for 2017-18 are: Captain Sara Denman of Garland; Right End Lieutenant Baleigh Williams of Austin; Right Middle Lieutenant Andress Zepeda of Deer Park; Left Middle Lieutenant Natalie Poss of Longview; and Left End Lieutenant Alexa Blair of Longview.
The Rangerettes’ first performance will be during halftime of KC’s first football game set for 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 26, in Kilgore versus Tyler Junior College.
When the Rangerettes began in 1940 as a vision of the late Gussie Nell Davis, the organization created a unique combination of dance moves and precision drills that quickly earned them the reputation not only as the originators of dance/drill teams but as the best in the world.
Known for their high kicks and the jump splits, the organization has traveled around the world, entertained millions and spurred a multi-billion-dollar dance/drill team industry worldwide.
