Congratulations to the Junior Varsity team from Jacksonville who are reigning state champs in not one, but two categories through the Illinois Drill Team Association. On, February 10, 2018, this team competed in the JV Lyrical and Pom Dance Category. They won both categories, plus were crowned Grand Champion in the JV division and high point award for their JV Lyrical routine. This year’s JV J’ette team was coached by Stephanie Bezler.
The Jacksonville J’ettes have not had a Junior Varsity team since 2007 when, they too, won an IDTA State Championship. Never, in J’ette history, has a Junior Varsity won two titles plus other Grand Championships. Coach Bezler is beyond proud of the hard work and dedication of these 10 young ladies. This JV team put in the same amount of time and commitment that their varsity counterpart members did throughout the season. They have a bright future indeed.
