NGU Majorette Named Second Runner-Up to National Title

Tigerville SC (October 3, 2017) Rachel Huber, the feature baton twirler of the North Greenville University Marching Crusader Band, represented NGU at both state and national competitions this summer. She performed her baton twirling routine which features one, two, three, and even four batons at once.

Huber, who practices three hours every day of the week, began baton twirling at the age of five and has been competing the past 16 years.

This year, she won the Miss Majorette of South Carolina pageant in North Augusta, SC, in July, as well as the Miss Majorette of the Southeast Region held in Savannah, GA, in May. Winning both the state and regional competitions qualified her to compete in the Collegiate National Championship at the University of Notre Dame in Notre Dame, IN, July 22-29.

At nationals, Huber competed against 86 other colleges and universities and became a top ten finalist. She placed second runner-up to the national title.

Over the last few years, she has won national titles in rhythmic twirl and three baton championships.

Huber, from Stow, OH, is a junior interdisciplinary studies major with her primary concentration in education and a secondary concentration in business. She plans to become a real estate attorney.

When asked how she plans to use her talent after graduation, she responded “I definitely want to teach baton twirling, because that was my dream ever since I was a little girl. I want to create a group out of Greenville, SC. I also want to give back to the sport and become a national judge.”
