The announcement, made in a closed ceremony in Dodson Auditorium on the Kilgore campus, culminates a week-long process of 89 “hopefuls” vying for a coveted position on the 2017-18 Rangerette line.
The new Rangerettes will join 36 sophomores to make a team of 72.
The Rangerettes were the first of their kind when they 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.
