Welcome Arizona State University

Moving to Sun Devil territory we welcome the Arizona State University feature twirlers,

Kylie Cates, Emma Carr, and Cody Carter.

National Twirling Champion, Collegiate Solo Twirling Champion, Collegiate Halftime Champion

and the WFNBTA Strut World Champion.

In true twirling fashion,she has been twirling for 19

years as a Jazz Doll in Ohio. Emma is a Junior majoring in Biomedical Science she is also the

2022 College Miss Majorette of America, and as a long live twirler she has been twirling for 14

years as a member of M Twirling Team. Finally we have Cody Carter, Cody is a Senior majoring

in Digital Theater or Theater Technology and as a born and raised Arizona boy he has been

twirling for 14 years. In the past year, Cody has won the Senior Men’s Grand National Twirling

Champion, and Senior WFNBTA Men’s 2-Baton World Champion.

The ASU Marching band is under the direction of Jim Hudson and the ASU feature

twirler coordinator is Cassidy Tse, a former ASU Feature Twirler. A typical ASU game day starts

with pre-game traditions, with the signature explosion block which is when the band runs around

during a drum cadence and spells out the letters “ASU.” Once pre-game is complete to get the

stadium excited for game day they watch the hype video on the big screen and the most popular

part is when the ASU Mascot, Sparky, stomps the bus of the opposing team while the football

team runs out on the field. After performing together in pre-game the ASU feature twirlers like to

incorporate their own routines so they have the best of both worlds. After a long and fun game,

the stadium joins the band and sings the Alma Mater together.

The ASU Feature Twirlers have loved the experience and friends they have made

through the program. They have loved the moments and opportunities including the Las Vegas

Bowl, especially seeing their halftime performance on ESPNW. Both Only Twirlers and the ASU

Feature Twirlers were so honored to have the ASU feature twirlers as this weekend's takeover.

Don’t forget to come back next

weekend for another takeover!
