The Mauriceville Middle School Twirlcatz are in their third year at the school and are improving with experience. The group and their sponsor, Kristin Robinson, attended twirling camp for five days in July, where the girls learned three new routines.

According to Ms. Robinson, “They will continue to practice and perfect their dances in order to perform at pep rallies, games and school functions. There are eight twirlers this year, including two returning eighth graders and six new seventh graders. We have high hopes to continue with the tradition of winning a state title at the end of the school year. The past two years the Twirlcatz have won the Louisiana State Twirling Competition. All the twirlers are very excited and ready for this new season.”
