Talle Olsen, Brooke Marvel, Grace Dodd, Kate Kilpatrick, and Riley Cheek will lead the Highland Belles for the 2018-2019 school year, strutting in the signature mostly-white, fringed lieutenant uniforms when football season resumes in August.
The Lieutenant Strut is an adaptation of the officer entrance performed by the Kilgore College Rangerettes, according to highlandbelles.org.
The new lieutenants were selected recently after a rigorous process in front of a panel of judges, the Belles announced in January.
The Highland Belles drill team was started in 1983 and added lieutenants a year later. The five officers lead the team in every practice and performance with each lieutenant in charge of a group of girls and responsible for teaching and critiquing all dances.
