Locals Performing During Capital One Bowl Halftime

December 31, 2012

A group of local majorettes will be performing during the halftime of Tuesday’s Capital One Bowl in Orlando.

Katilyn Abbott, a majorette at Northview High School, attended a summer camp at the University of South Alabama where she won first place in “Outstanding Majorette Solo”,  “Grand Champion Majorette”, and the “All-Star Performer Award”. With the All-Star Performer award, she received personal invitations to the Capital One Bowl in Orlando and the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.

She picked the Capital One Bowl where she will be joined on the field at halftime by four other members of the local Twirl Time Group –  Dana Hursh, Maggie Thomas, Julie Hester and Valen Shelly.  The group traveled to Orlando last week along with former Twirl Time student Mallorie Beachy and Twirl Time instructor Angie Shelly.

The Capital One Bowl between the Georgia Bulldogs and the Nebraska Cornhuskers will air locally at noon Tuesday on WEAR 3 from the Florida Citrus Bowl in Orlando.
