Just over a week ago, the beautiful and talented Plano Senior High School Planoettes wowed judges at Regionals and have advanced to Nationals. Meredith Walraven, Planoettes Director, said that the girls have gone above and beyond not only during performances, but in our community and as a sisterhood. “They support one another, encourage each other, and truly motivate each girl to be their very best,” she said. “I could not be more overjoyed for how they performed on the floor as a team at the Regional contest! It was a true testament that hard work pays off! …I am so proud of our team and am honored to be the director of such an incredibly talented and hardworking group of young ladies! Grand Champions!”

Nationals will take place March 18–19, 2016 and Walraven enthused, “This is our year… Nationals here we come!”

Congratulations to the Planoettes!
