I got there early to help set up and it wasn't long before the girls on the squad started showing up, 38 of the 45 girls on the squad in all. While fans were still just starting to arrive, there were photo ops galore.

|Amelina, Sarah, Anna, Amanda F, Holly, and Lonna|
|Ashley, Alecia, Kristin B, Amelina, Brandi, Rita, Murissa, and Kristina|
|Laura, Lydia, and Dana|
|Liz, Ali, 97Rock intern and future Jill Katy R, Stephanie, Jill D, and Angelina|
After that was completed, all the girls took the stage as they showed off the suits they wore in the 2008-09 Swimsuit calendar. With a different venue than in previous years, I had to pick out a spot where I could get the best shots possible but unfortunately, the lighting from where I was didn't cooperate on everyone's pics. I did get a few good shots of some of the most beautiful young women in Western NY, though.

From the Bandettes comes a photo from the 2nd home game against the Philadelphia Wings. Since getting my season tickets in 2007, I'm always getting the girls on the squad posing for pictures. Besides the photos going out to the fans, the girls are very interested in getting them as well. A lot of cheerleaders over the years, Jills and Bandettes alike, have told me they don't get many photos of themselves in action through friends and family and this site has become a great resource for them and they'll be able to share these photos years from now with children and grandchildren to show them what they used to do. Prior to this game, we have a group posing together made up of Kelsey, LB, Cheri, Brianna, Mandy, and Lauren K.
