Spirit Team Trivia:

*For those who don’t know her…meet former Charger Girl and track star extraordinaire, Tara Davis…a 2017 Agoura High School Grad.
The picture is at USA NATIONALS 2015 of Tara after the Spirit Team Team ‘nailed’ their Crowdleading routine. Guess she knew that they had secured another win (#15) in that division!
*Now a stellar International Track Star at The University of Georgia she ‘Crowdleads’ by having the audience in the stands clapping in rhythm before every one of her events to help her get ready by keeping the‘ beat’!
‘Once a Charger Girl….always a Charger Girl’….. That’s our Tara!

*PS- in the California State Finals in 2017 she singlehandedly won 2nd place in the State for the ENTIRE Agoura Girls Track Team!
