Eagle Pride Leadership List


Congratulation to the 2014-15 Color Guard Captains – Miranda Elkin and Danielle Ragnoli. Lieutenants are Rebekah Conrad and Jennifer Mountain. Additional Squad Leaders may be announced after the second round of tryouts is completed and we see if additional leadership is warranted.

Girls who made the guard in the first round of tryouts are NOT required to attend the second round of tryouts. Any girls wanting additional help/practice MAY attend the second round. Leadership listed above should attend and any other “Vets”/ Leadership applicants MAY attend the second round to assist with new girls.

All Color Guard and Majorettes are expected to attend the Auxiliary Meeting on Tuesday, June 3 at 6:00pm in the Band Room. In addition, NEW  students must attend the New Student/Parent Orientation at 6:30 in the NHS Auditorium.

2014-15 Jazz 1



Congratulations to those selected yesterday (5/5) for the 2014-15 Color Guard for the Eagle Pride. They are:

Skyler Adams, Kendal Amaker, Ana Arias, Sophia Baker, Mikayla Barfield, Lauren Cole, Alexis Coleman, Madeline Colon, Rebekah Conrad, Bailey Deyoung, Sydney Donavan, Myranda Elkin, Kaitlyn Fine, Asha Futrell, Nikki Gilbert, Anslee Gregoire, Katie Harris, Cate Jensen, Taylor Joyner, Mia Martinez-McMahon, Jazmyne McCay, Carmen Mitchum, Jennifer Mountain, Sarah Mountain, Thanh Nguyen, Catherine Parker, Danielle Ragnoli, Brittany Reed, Samantha Rivera, Megan Simpson, Taryn Tomassetti, Valerie Trolian, Paige Widner, and Amanda Wolfrom.

Please be aware that alternates will be selected for the half-time show.

Reminder: On Tuesday, June 3, we will hold the required Auxiliary (Flag/Majorette) orientation for ALL new and returning members at 6:00 pm in the NHS Band Room.

Also, because of the weather last week and the loss of two days of instruction, we will be having an additional two day clinic and a make-up tryout session before school is out. This will allow for those that came to the clinic but didn’t feel prepared enough to tryout the opportunity to finish the process. It will also permit any other girls who did not attend the previous clinic, but are interested in participating as a flag with the Eagle Pride to have a chance to do so.

Requirements will be the same as for those that have already tried out so that the criteria will be consitent for both tryout dates. More information will be available soon.


The 2014-15 FBA All-State Requirements are posted. Click here for the link.
