Northwestern State University continued decades of its rich traditions April 22 as students displayed their talents trying out for various spirit groups. Future cheerleaders practiced stunts and cheers, aspiring Demon Dazzlers performed dance routines and flags snapped in the HPE Building as the Demon Heat Color Guard held auditions.
The Demon Dazzlers marked a first in their 50+ years as Devante Bethley, a sophomore theater major from Baton Rouge, became the first man to try out for the popular dance group.
The Natchitoches Parish Journal extends its best wishes to all the young men and women who tried out. We look forward to seeing your performances throughout the upcoming seasons.
