South’s very own South Steppers took on their first performance of the year during the Homecoming Pep Assembly on Sept. 15.
During the Homecoming Assembly that took place in the school gymnasium, the step team made their way out onto the floor to kick off their 2017 – 2018 season. After the performance, they were awarded with a loud applause and lots of cheers from their peers.
The team was started last school year in November and has been doing a “fantastic job” says sophomore Nyla Talley, ever since, which encouraged even more people to join this year.
“It sounded like a lot of fun and I wanted to get involved,” said freshman Shania Pray, a new team member.
Her favorite part of the team so far is “performing” and “meeting new people.” She would recommend joining next year.
“It’s a lot of fun and a good way to get involved,” she said.
Leah Holt, junior, who is co-captain, said that we can expect to see “new routines and a new look” and of course “lots of new faces.”
“My favorite thing about the team is that we’re becoming diverse and I think we’re more hardworking this year,” said Holt.
As the year goes on, South can expect to see more of the South Steppers in action. There is an upcoming performance on Sept. 29 on a Friday. The team will be performing during halftime of the boys football against Liberty at 6 p.m. They will also be a part of the schedule during the Winter Sports Assembly.
