Lionettes push for high performance

School spirit and team pride can be fleeting but the ladies of the Ennis High School Lionettes work together to make sure that doesn’t happen to them.
This team of 22 dancers along with their manager and coach are non-stop energy and excitement. Their main objective is showing their school and the community how hard they work and how committed they are to putting on a great show under the Friday night lights.

Cassie Ortiz, a former drill team member in high school and college herself, coaches the girls not only in dance technique but also with skills that will help them long after they’ve left the performing stage. The drill team members, as well as their team manager Kylie Rejcek, are polite and considerate of their teammates and others. You won’t hear Ortiz say anything to them that isn’t followed by a “yes ma’am” or a “no ma’am.” Along with the mutual respect they show one another, the girls never stop working hard. Each week the ladies tryout to earn a spot on the sidelines at the football game.
