Silverline’s region competition had the student body just as excited as they were.
On January 27, the day of the competition, Silverline hosted face painting in the commons to get students decked out in school spirit. After getting their faces painted, they could head to the competition ready to represent Fremont.
“I was so pumped to watch Silverline at region. I had never gone before until last year and it was so sick I couldn’t wait to watch them dance again this year,” said Senior Shelby Taylor, fan of Silverline.
This competition was very important for the drill team. They headed into the competition at Roy High School defending their region title as champions. The competition also determines which teams will compete at state, as three schools are cut from the running.
“Our region competition is really intense and exciting,” said Junior Chloe Egbert, Silverline officer. “Some people started lining up to get into the competition at 2 a.m. and the line got crazy long. Every school wants the best section to watch their drill team.”
When every school in the region has talent and a fight to be #1 it makes for a tough competition. But Fremont was planning to bring their own secret weapon, The Wolf Pack.
“The bleachers were a sea of blue and their energy helped us so much dancing out on the floor,” said Egbert.
The team worked all year to prepare for this competition and loved seeing their student body there supporting them. They left their hearts on the floor for the Silver Wolves in the crowd who made the foreign and competitive dance floor feel more like home.
At the end of the competition they found their secret weapon helped. Silverline placed 3rd overall at region, and on February 4 attended state but were eliminated in the first round.
They head to California the end of March to compete at Nationals.
