June 24, 2019, Bonners Ferry High School received a new coach for the Badgerettes Dance Team. Lifetime local, Dawn Facha, was announced in the evening after the board approved her application.
Facha will work together with former coach, Lisa Dirks, to quickly get up to speed on the ins and out of coaching the Dance Team, and getting the team organized and ready for the next school year.
One item, which has been waiting for the appointment of a new coach, is tryouts for the 2019-20 school year.
Coach Facha announced that tryouts for the Badgerettes Dance Team, for the 2019-20 school year, will be held Monday, July 1 and Tuesday, July 2 from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm at the Bonners Ferry High School gymnasium. The final tryout will be from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm on Wednesday the 3rd. Students must attend all three sessions.
Results will then be posted at the High School on the 5th.
The Dance Team is one of the high school teams that participate in year-round activities. Beginning with team camp and fundraisers during the summer, they move into to fall sports season performing at the home football games. After that comes winter sports seasons, with basketball and wrestling games. Then finally the team moves into competition season in the spring. It takes hard work, cooperation, and dedication to belong to a team such as this. Hopefully, they will have an amazing turn out of students ready to prove how tough they are.
Congrats to Dawn Facha! And good luck to all who try out!
