Argyle Welcomes New Drill Team

by Susan Neuhalfen

As Argyle continues to grow so does the list of activities for students. One thing that was noticeably missing to many was a drill team. All that has now changed.

“The best part is seeing how excited the community was to see the new drill team, “ said Mrs. Haley Martinez, coach of the Majestics. “These girls come in early and stay late on their own. I love watching how hard they work to improve.”

Argyle High School recently hired Martinez as a dance teacher and she is also acting as the drill team instructor for the high school. She teaches dance classes as part of the Fine Arts program at the middle school as well as high school that may be taken for a PE credit. Her drill team, chosen in April, already started practice in May and has performed at pep rallies and AHS football games.

Chay Coulter coaches the AYSA Talonettes Drill Team. Her girls may participate in drill team from Kindergarten through 6th grade. Coulter says her girls are beyond excited about the new drill team.

“Up until now, the girls stopped drill team at 6th grade,” said Coulter “Now they have something to look forward to.”

Coulter immediately met with Martinez to coordinate a partnership between the groups. As a result, some of the Majestics came and taught the younger girls some routines at their summer camp. The Talonettes are trying to mirror the AHS uniforms as well, making them feel more like they are part of the team.

“We’re really excited to be working with Mrs. Martinez and the AHS drill team, “ said Coulter. “Seeing the older girls gives the Talonettes something to move toward and goals to set.”
