Team captain Ana Duncan reflected on the year. “This year was fantastic and absolutely flew by. It was exciting, but unlike any other year on the team that I had experiencing. This year we got to experience things like College Game Day, traveling to a regular season game for the first time since Covid, and we became so much more involved with Athletics as a whole. I feel that this team is definitely better off than how I found it as a freshman four years ago, but that is because this specific team worked incredibly hard and people like Mr. Doug Gillian, Sarah Strickland, and Coach Morgan Delgado placed so much faith in us. With those individuals, my Co-Captains, and the rest of the team backing me, I feel confident that I was able to make a positive impact on the team, which was my ultimate goal for the year.” – 2022-2023 Team Captain Ana Duncan

The 2023-2024 App State Dance Team

Great things are in the works for the 2023-2024 team according to the new Team Captain Alex Franks. “I am feeling super excited and ready! We have been working behind the scenes for months to prepare for tryouts and next year and we are so excited to see it come to fruition! The dance team as a whole for the first time ever is attending UDA camp this July at East Tennessee State University which is huge for us! Overall I am just excited and ready for people to see these girls in Kidd Brewer come September!” – 2023-2024 Team Captain Alex Franks
