Photos finished from Jills tryouts

Just a little note that the pictures and videos taken at Sunday's round of Jills tryouts are all posted at Videos were shot of most of the veteran routines as well as some random prospective rookies. (My apologies to the vets who didn't get videos...Valerie already gave me a little grief about

We also have some news from the final results of Jills tryouts. A photo will be taken of the completed squad at their first practice on Tuesday so we'll see the new squad photo about Wednesday. 27 veterans return to this year's 45-girl roster but out of the 18 remaining slots that were filled, only 15 of them are true rookies. We have 3 familiar faces returning to the ranks as well. 2003-2004 dancer Kelly Ann returns to the squad as an Ambassador while a pair of girls from the 2007 squad return as dancers. Michelle was on that squad just briefly while Kaitlin V spent the entire season on the Ambassador Squad.
We also have a little bit of shifting around on the squads to reveal as well. The 2009 Jills Ambassador Squad will definitely have a different look this year as Laura joins captains Danielle and Keisha as the only returnees to the squad from last season along with the aforementioned Kelly Ann and 8 fresh-faced rookies to the 12-girl squad. The 33-girl dance squads, headed up by Omarlla, Eileen, and Nicole get some transfers from the Ambassador Squad as 3rd year vets Amanda F and Vincenza make the transition along with 2nd year vet Liz and returnee Kaitlin V.
For more, stay tuned to CW23, 97Rock, and the Buffalo Pro Cheer Blog as more is revealed from the new 2009-2010 Buffalo Jills squad.
Congratulations to all the rookies, returning vets, and the vets transitioning over to dance!
