Dance members for the Killeen High School Kangarettes start prepping in July for the upcoming football season and various competitions throughout the year.

Hard work and practice pays off.

Out of 120 teams from across the country from different studios and schools, the Killeen High School Kangarettes have just achieved a major accomplishment.

These talented young ladies can now boast that they are National Champions of the American Dance and Drill Team!

Yes, NATIONAL CHAMPS!

Shout out to Kelsie Archer who in just her second year as Kangarettes director, has brought the ladies from 13th place to 3rd place to national champion!
