She calls them athletes. It's all a part of her quest for baton twirling to be recognized for the physically demanding sport that it is. "It's not just learning how to do a trick," said Meis, who coaches Shannon's All Stars, a Salina twirling organization with about 45 students. "It's learning how to coordinate it all. These are girls who are well trained and in excellent shape to pull off the routines they do. It takes a great deal of dedication and lots of hard work and practice. These girls are athletes." More than 200 twirlers will be competing in Salina this weekend in the state contest for the National Baton Twirling Association. Meis is the organizer of the event, which rotates every three years from Kansas City, Kan., to Pittsburgh to Salina. Twirlers will be competing in age groups from 3 to 22 and in different levels of abilities and categories, Meis said. The competition starts at 9 a.m. Saturday and will continue at 9 a.m. Sunday until sometime in the afternoon, when undefeated, four-time state wrestling champion Bo Maynes will present the awards to the winners. The South High Marching Band will have concession stands to raise money for the band. The state title winners will move onto the national competi- tion at Notre Dame in South Bend, Ind. Seven judges from all over the country, including Colorado, California and Nebraska, will be there. Most of the competitors are from Kansas, although a few are from out-of-state to compete in the "open" competition. "That is a good opportunity to compete in preparation for nationals or for competitions in their own state," Meis said. Twirlers are judged on choreography, variety, difficulty, presentation and showmanship, among other things, Meis said. . IMeet nan ; A new iddition to our trustworthy staff.
