Meghan, a Captain of the Buffalo Bandettes, is entering her fourth season as a dancer for the World Champion Buffalo Bandits lacrosse team. Last season, as a co-captain, Meghan demonstrated outstanding leadership skills, dedication to her team and a positive attitude that made her an obvious choice as Captain of the 2009 Bandettes.
In addition to dancing for the world champions, Meghan is an expert on Bandits lacrosse. She consistently follows the team's statistics, knows their history, and is always trying to learn more about the sport.

Coming up next for the Jills, there is an open, FREE, required workshop for all interested Dancer and Ambassador Jills on Sunday, March 29th, 2009 at 10am at Fusion Dance Studio. Ending time will be determined by number of attendee’s. Please come early to check-in and pack a healthy snack. The actual audition dance routine will be taught at this workshop as well as learning all the requirements for both the Dance squad AND the Ambassador squad. On the 29th, young ladies auditioning for the Dance squad should wear shorts and ½ top- Young ladies auditioning only for the Ambassador squad should be in business casual attire on the 29th. If you are not sure what squad you’d like to audition for, wear dance attire so you can try that first. There is no fee for this 1st workshop. You will not be judged at this workshop however; it is still important that you look your best because video and photos are taken. There will be a short question and answer period during this workshop to help you understand what to expect throughout auditions and what is expected of a Buffalo Jill.

On Friday night, the 2008-09 Buffalo Jills invaded Club Paradise for their last event of the season, the Buffalo Jills Adult Comedy Show. 97Rock's own Rob Lederman emceed the event which featured Joel Lindley from the Conan O'Brian Show. Lindley has also been seen in Boston Public and the MTV Half Hour Comedy Show and is a regular on the Bob & Tom Show.
Last week in Toronto, Bandits netminder Ken Montour held the Rock to 6 goals in an 8-6 win for the visiting Bandits. Back home on Friday night, Montour stifled the visiting Rochester Knighthawks just as much. However, while the Bandits only put up 8 goals in Toronto, on this night they had those 8 goals by halftime with an 8-3 tally. In the second half, however, the scoring really took off for the Bandits as they piled on an additional 15 goals to humiliate their thruway rivals. Besides goaltender Ken Montour stepping up in a big way, last year's Championship Game MVP Mark Steenhuis made his presence felt to the tune of 8 goals while Roger Vyse chipped in 5 goals of his own, including one that squeaked in as time expired at the end of the 1st half.

After a football season in which Buffalo's professional home team fell apart down the stretch, 1 local pro team is starting to defend a championship title that they won last year. The Buffalo Bandits National Lacrosse League team opened up the 2009 season in memorable fashion in front of a sold out crowd in Buffalo's HSBC Arena. Prior to the game itself, an onfield ceremony was held, dedicating the season to Buffalo News writer Tom Borelli, well-known as the best writer in lacrosse, who passed away this past November. The Bandits will be wearing a sticker on the back of their helmets all year with his initials and a lacrosse stick and pen crossed beneath them.
