Do Highland Belles Have Weekly Weigh-Ins?
In this week’s edition of Park Cities People, intern Samantha Carp has a feature on Allison Stuckey, who teaches Zumba fitness classes in the Plaza Health Foods studio. Her story includes these sentences that caught my eye:
She performed with the Highland Belles drill team for all four of her years at Highland Park High School. Every Friday, after she and her fellow Belles weighed in, they treated themselves to a cup of frozen yogurt.
So many questions:
- Was there a target weight for all Belles, or was there a sliding scale depending on their heights?
- Are these weekly weigh-ins still a standard practice 23 years after Stuckey graduated?
- If so, is Plaza Health Foods frozen yogurt still the post-weigh-in treat of choice?
Enlighten me, please. I went to a high school with no drill team, so this is all foreign territory.
