On Saturday, the finalists for next year's Blazer Dancers squad took to the stage at the Winningstad Theater, performing in front of family and friends to decide who would make the 16 lady team for the 2009-10 season. After all 35 finalists had a chance to dance, they would have to wait until Sunday afternoon at the Rose Garden to see if they were one of the top 16. (Full write up here)
We're sad to see a few of our favorites not on the squad this year; namely Marissa and Ione. Marissa even left us a little Tweet this morning reminding everyone that this would be the first time in almost a decade that neither would be with the BD's...sad.
@marissaivana: Yes this is the 1st yr in nearly a DECADE that my sis or I are not dancing for the blazers. Wonderful memories by it's just time to MOVE ONThere are still plenty of favorites from last year including Cristi, Caitlin, and Taren, plus a whole slew of newbies.
And don't forget that Comcast SportsNet was on hand to film the whole shindig and should be popping out another Blazer Dancers show for us all to oogle over in the coming months.
Here they are!
In alphabetical order: Amy, Caitlin, CaMicha, Christel, Cristi, Eri, Kimberly, Mari, Mary Ellen, Melissa, Michelle, Rea, Taren, Tina, Vanessa and Veronica.
