We start off our 2011 Bandette of The Week series with the co-captains and this week, we put the focus on 5th year vet Beth. After starting with the squad in 2006 and winning the Bandettes' Rookie of The Year award, she spent 3 seasons dancing at HSBC Arena before taking a season off and coming back last season. Since joining the Bandettes, she's gotten married, earned her master's degree in elementary education, and starting passing on her love of dance to the cheerleaders that she's coached. Besides loving to dance, she loves to stay busy and travel as well. She's traveled to China a few times as well as Hawaii where Buffalo Jill Katie, who Beth and the rest of the Bandettes danced with in Toronto, currently is for the Pro Bowl. In her bio, she's said that her biggest weakness is being indecisive but that has actually worked out in the fans' favor when you consider that she had decided to quit after 3 seasons but changed her mind and came back to the squad after realizing how much she missed it. Melissa, her captain and one of her closest friends on the squad, is in her 7th season so we can hope that Beth decides to put in at least that much time and keeps contributing in a big way to the NLL's premier dance squad.
Beth's secondary photo comes from the 1st quarter of the Home Opener and features Ashley, Krista, Beth, and Chrissy in the middle of a dance routine.
