Drills place

When we have a professional drill competition and fill arenas or stadiums with paid spectators then I will concede of it's true importance. Until then I see it as plastic, for enjoyment of parents and grandparents, no real significance.

DHS DRILL MISTRESS

congrats to all of the awesome teams that won!!! uintah congrats for winning again and same to millard you guys are awesome!!! and to duchesne my team congrats!!! THAT IS OUR 6th state championship!!! we worked our butts off for it and thanks to everyone who came to support us!!! good job to all of the other 1A teams also u did great!... GO TALONS LOVE YA!!!!

Drill Has A Place

If you have an opinion that is fine, but please, don't go putting other people down for no real "significant" reason. If you knew anything about Drill Team, you might stop to think that every year there are thousands of people, parents, grandparents, and "spectators" who pay money to get into huge "stadiums". It has a lot of significance to a lot of people, including the girls who no only spend their blood sweat and tears for this sport, but spend that of their family's as well.

If this really has no significance to you then please, don't waste your energy insulting the girls who give their life to this.

Insignifigant? Foot in mouth...

If you cared enough to get on this web sight& talk smack on drill team, then it looks like its obviously important to you. Duh.

*Snuggles*

Drill team IS a sport!!!
Duchesne's Drill Team gets up and starts practice at 5:30 in the morning, before school, and sometimes after school. You have to practice, you have rules, you have a timer, IT'S A SPORT!!!!!!! It may not have a ball like football, and it may not have moves like wrestling, but it's stil a sport!!! Drill Teamers work just as hard as footballers or any other jocks. If they miss a practice, They make up for it, somehow they do.
Get over it! Drill Team is a Sport!

What about Cedar? They came in Second overall out of 3a and they did amazing! Way to go Mohey!!!!

To NS:

Thanks for your comment. It really means a lot that someone recognizes what we do and how hard we work. Most time we don't get the respect that we deserve and it really means more to us than you know! Thanks

hey

drill team parents stop trying to stand up for your little girls you know this isn't a sport and its not important...

What's your reasoning?

OK, all you intellectuals that don't think drill team is a sport, let's hear your reasons.
I've read lots of reasons why it is, including the definition of the word sport. These reasons are all valid.
I have not read a single nay sayer give a reason why it's not a sport. I bet any reason you give can be used to disqualify some of their favorite sports as well.

Judge Judy

Duchesne definitely did win the 1A competition, but to say they would have won the 2A is a bit far-fetched. I am a 1A person, but I am objective enough to know when another team or classification is better. This year, especially in drill team, 2A was better than 1A. Duchesne would have been somewhere in the pack after Millard, South Sevier, Manti. Those teams were better...much better. Congratulations Duchesne on being state champs but keep it real.
To the Rich fan who is miffed about Piute beating you. Again if all the judges thought Piute beat you in all three categories, let it go. No one likes a sore loser. If it will make you feel any better, you still have a very good volleyball team that did beat Piute, okay?

Re Judge Judy

I am from Millard, and I think Duchesne would have given us a run for our money. They are so far ahead of the rest of 1A that is not even funny. I think it would be close if they were in 2A. They are by far the best 1A drill team I've ever seen.

There is much more to been seen than on the floor. The hours put into drill is incredible!! The conditioning is way intense nobody see's behind the scenes of drill. Unless you have been there first hand you have no clue, its more than just dancing.. Summer training especially is killer, although it goes on all year. I know at my school football coaches threaten boys they will have to condition with drill team for punishment.. Think what you may but enough said.

Question

So why is this in the sports section again?

Re: Steek

Question: Since when did Dwight Schrute get so interested in drill team?

Dance is a sport!

For the last time, and i agree that everyone thinks that BINGHAM should of won except for Hillcrest! This was a joke and we do know it! Bingham is spot on perfect DID YOU SEE HILCREST!!!!!!!! Well way to go Bingham! Hilcrest should be ranked down to 4A!!!!!! Ha ha it is so true!!!! We need to forget about it! By the way who ever is saying dance isn't a sport BOO HISS for you!!!! Go BHS!!! Bingham!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Good job Alta for making it in 7 years! I should say that!JK Good for you!!! GO BINGHAM
