On Nov. 4 the North Sanpete Hawks Drill Team sent three members to try out for the 3A All-State Drill Team, and all three made the final cut.
Jordan Hilton, daughter of Barrett and Kati Hilton from Moroni; Karissa Vogt, daughter of Matt and Tenna Vogt from Farivew; and Cambree Pehrson, daughter of Ben and Emilee Pehrson of Fairview all represented North Sanpete.
The three seniors have been a part of North Sanpete Drill Team all four years of high school, which is under the direction of Kiersten Wheeler and Brittany Dyches.
“All-State was a really fun and nerve-wracking experience for me,” said Hilton, head drill mistress. “I am so proud of all three of us for working so hard to earn a spot, especially because they only keep a selected few.”
Cambree enjoyed the experience because she was able to meet and dance with other dancers in the 3A division from all over the state.
“There is so much talent all over the state, and it was such an amazing experience,” Cambree said.
Karissa said that hard work and dedication contributed to them being chosen by their coaches and being able to compete and make the team.
“It was so much fun going with my two best friends,” said Karissa. “Then hearing all three of our numbers called as being chosen to be a part of the team was the best feeling.”
All three girls said that they are lucky to have such great support from their families, teammates, coaches, and the school, which pushed them along and made them work as hard as they could.
