Debutantes dance team on way to state

The West Linn High School Debutantes will take the floor tomorrow, Saturday Feb.16 and Sunday Feb. 17 at 12 a.m. for a competition at Parkrose High School. The team will compete against other schools and prepare for State, which is held at the Rose Garden on Mar. 13 and 14. Team captains, Taylor Nopson, senior, Reggie McClellan, senior and Abby Schrader, junior will lead the team. All three captains have been a part of the Debs since freshman year.

“It is very hard work, there is a huge amount of dedication needed,” Schrader said. This year there are 21 members, a drop from previous years.

“In past years it was hard to get close to people. With fewer members we definitely have more of a community,” Nopson said.

The ultimate goal for the team is to do well in State, but the road involves many competitions such as the one this coming weekend.
