All About The Tigerettes

Who We Are...
The Tigerettes were founded in 1988 by Lana Sleeper as a student organization. However, in the 1989 school year, the Tigerettes became an official support/spirit group for Cowley County athletics. Since then, the dance team has become one of Cowley’s brightest traditions. The team consists of 16-20 young ladies that wish to continue their dance careers while entertaining the sport fans at Cowley College’s basketball games. The Tigerettes are under its second director, Lindsay Sanderholm.

What We Do...
The Tigerettes perform dance routines during timeouts and halftime of all men’s and women’s home basketball games. The team also cheers on the sidelines during the games.  The team performs a variety of styles including jazz, pom, hip-hop, high kick, and novelty. In addition to performing at basketball, the Cowley Tigerettes have the opportunity to participate in other special events. The danceline has performed at Wichita State basketball games and the National VICA conference at Century II in Wichita. In 2004, the team traveled to Louisville, Kentucky to perform at the 52nd Annual Breakfast of the American Angus Beef Auxiliary. The team also performs at various community events and parades during the year. Members have also been invited to model at the Arkalalah Queen’s Tea, Safe Homes Benefit Show, and the Ducks Unlimited Dinner/Auction. The Tigerettes compete each year at the NCA/NDA Collegiate National Championship in Daytona Beach, Florida!
