  • My comment was in answer to a question posted by Parent. Not stirring the pot....simply answering a question.

  • The Dance team uniforms were ordered right after the approval. For months when followed-up on, they were told that the order was right on schedule. Two weeks before the first game, they were given a date the order will be received. The week that they were to be here, DJ followed up and the salesman told her that they have been on strike since July. They are back, but the black fabric is on back order. He lied.

    Lots of tears and frustration, the Warriors will prevail and appreciate them when they get here.

  • Main Entry: legacy
    Part of Speech: noun
    Definition: inheritance, heritage
    Synonyms: bequest, birthright, devise, endowment, estate, gift, heirloom, throwback, tradition

    So, if the dance team is named Legacy, you can use the synonym of "birthright" and all your questions will be answered. Some people have the birthright to do whatever they choose.

  • Just wondering if DJ isn't suppose to use victoriadores why are they the West Legacy of the Victoriadores. This slogan is being used by the West Dance Team. Is this true?

  • I wish you people would actually read the article before posting!
    Clearly it says that DJ will not be using the victoriadores name at the west high school!
    Yes, Camp is in August but the team was already chosen in may so how would the team not be able to choose the name before the school starts.
    The people who post negative things towards either drill team obviously have never taken part in a dance team or perhaps any team in that matter because they have no idea what they speak of!
    If you were on the team for your four years of high school and hated it, why didnt you just quit?? NOONE is forced to stay on the team, the door was right there the entire time?

    Question: Do any one of yall know DJ Jaynes on a personal level?
    If you did, you clearly know how much she loves each girl on the team and that she would do anything for anyone of them! she loves what she does, isnt that the feeling your supposed to have when you go to work everyday? To Be Happy with what your doing?

    Both teams are ready for a new adventure! The Girls on this team know what they sign up for and they enjoy it!
    People like to think everyone in drill team is rich and the girls drive fancy cars and pay for enerything out of pocket.
    I beg to differ because i know for sure that is NOT true.
    Most do not live in Country Club or Colony Creek!
    You Do not have to pay out of pocket, their are sooo many fundraisers to help families off set the costs.
    They are just average girls who just want to have a good time in high school and spend time with their friends.
    Drill team is Great because the girls do get to spend lots of time with their friends.
    They cheer at many school activities and support the town they love!
    The girls again do not pay for dress uniforms either.
    Clearly, this is what the article is about, the board approving the cost of the dress uniforms for both schools.
    I dont think the extra $546 dollars is that bad coming from the fact that the uniforms were custom designed by the team itself and includes two different uniforms that can actually be made into 5 (considering the Reversable Skirt)!
    There are no "dingleberries" on the hats and they are a totally different design.
    I dont understand how people can go on bashing a group of girls that just have fun doing what they love.
    I dont understand where this hate could come, from but try and learn a little bit more about the topic in question before you go on trashing a high school activity.
    Thank You.

  • The West uniform looks similar to the Victoriadore uniform with some minor changes.

    June 22, 2010 at 12:52 p.m.
  • I actually like both sets of uniforms. Each represents a different drill team style, which will probably also be the case as each has on-field routines. I appreciate the fact that one does not resemble the other and that each group can start to make their own name in drill team circles.

    I don't have, and have never had, a horse in any of these races. But I find some of the comments and accusations appalling. I CAN tell you from personal experience that no woman would choose to work exclusively with 70+ teenage girls--be it drill team, cheerleading, or something else--if they didn't love what they were doing and believe it in wholeheartedly. Just as no football coach would place his career in the hands of high-school boys unless he loved what he did and believed in it. High school teams of all types and genders are full of drama due to the simple fact that they are made up of HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS!

    I simply appreciate that Ms. Calvez and Ms. Jaynes are willing and excited to take on the challenge of starting a team at a new school. Good luck to both groups of young ladies.

  • RedRageVic- those are some serious allegations you're throwing around.

    i hope you have proof, because you could end up with egg on your face if you don't.

    i remember, way back in my days at vhs, when kids would do stupd things like egg someones house. it was always something they planned on their own.

    you should have seen some of the things we did during powder puff.

  • Warriors2010 hit the nail on the head! My daughter is one of those girls who works her fundraisers hard so we can be apart of this great family. DJ has assured us no child will be left behind. I think that says alot for her reputation.
    The girls helped in deciding what this years uniform would look like and each side, east and west was given a budget to follow per girl. West chose to include pants, which was within their budget... East went for a recital like uniform... to each his own. The point is that they were each given a budget that was EQUAL... I guess people only choose to start vicious rumors to make it seem like West is getting more than East. If East has something to gripe about, see Their director.

    June 21, 2010 at 3:57 p.m.
  • WOW guys... The drama never stops does it? How in the world can you base your opinions on hearsay? Have you EVER played the game telephone? Can you not remember that by the end of the game the sentence was VERY different than how it began? You are all twisting the truth and doing it to simply burn this superior program.
    Give it a rest... Support your school in a positive manner and see how things work themselves out. Why do you care so much about the other programs? Why dont you focus ALL of this negative attention on your own program and work on building a winning team as well.

    The team is not picking their name until summer line camp this summer.... This is because DJ wants the team to pick their own name and do it when they are all together. ( She also let the girls design their own uniform)

    She does this for the KIDS, she wants them to build this program the way they want it to be. AND GIVE ME A BREAK.... Drill team is NOT for everyone, it takes a lot of Discipline, Determination, Dedication and Responsibility..... BUT, if you are not someone fit for this team NO ONE WOULD EVER destroy your property.

    That is the most absurd thing I have ever heard. I bet the team was happy your child left the team because she obviously didnt want to be there? I am amazed by all of the crazy things people say on this website.

    The drill team members do NOT pay for their dress uniforms.... However, they do pay for their Friday Uniforms and all other costumes. DO any of yall even know DJ on a personal level? Do any of yall know how BIG her heart really is? I hope on your "audit" you see that every member is responsible for their own payments, BUT.... no one is kicked out because of finances.

    If there is a child whose parents can not financially support drill team, they are given the opportunity to fundraise every penny needed for the year. ALSO, if a child EVER approaches one of the directors/Booster Club Members and finds themself in a bind, they work with the child.

    Have you ever been to some of the members homes? The majority of the team does not member in the country club and most of them live in very high violence neighborhoods.

    The drill team is a home away from home for many students that need a little guidance and love. It has been a turning point for many people. Give this team a chance.

    Let the team build without this craziness. You dont have to LOVE them, but please dont ruin this exciting time....

  • DJ is such an evil person...OMG, did she attack you with a pom pom? LMFAO....did she throw a Vdore hat at you hahahha....do you know how silly yall sound?

    June 20, 2010 at 11:31 p.m.
  • I really don't care about audit results. I just think its funny that you stayed in something for FOUR years when you didn't like it ROFL

    June 20, 2010 at 11:28 p.m.

    Has nothing to do with witches. It has to do with the posting rules, which we know you read and agreed to when you signed up your screen name:

    "No stating of unsubstantiated information as fact."

    among other rules, like calling names, etc.

    They are not going to let you attack anyone like that, so give it a rest.

    June 20, 2010 at 11:10 p.m.
  • LOL! DJ and the Victoriadores were so bad but he or she stayed in it for FOUR YEARS! ROFL

    No one forced you to be in it. ROFL

    June 20, 2010 at 11:05 p.m.
  • More to the point, could her monkeys really fly?

    June 20, 2010 at 10:15 p.m.
  • i'm sorry, but if things are as bad as you say, then you and the others are more to blame than dj or anyone else.

    if there are no girls on the team, then there is no team.

    things must have really changed since i was at vhs.

    can you expand on what you said was so bad?

    no one, so far, has given any specifics on what she does or did that is bad.

    June 20, 2010 at 10:14 p.m.
  • Which old witch?

    June 20, 2010 at 10:02 p.m.
  • so you were forced to be a part of the drill team?

    June 20, 2010 at 9:46 p.m.

    If you did not volunteer, then you must have been drafted.

    Your words: "I was is in this drill team for four long years.. I SAW everything. It was the worst four years of my life.... If my kids friends were not in it I would have ever ever let my kid in this CULT."

    Let me repeat, "I was is in this drill team for four long years."

    Is you in, or was you not?

    June 20, 2010 at 9:45 p.m.
  • cmonman, you spent 4 years volunteering for something you obviously loath. why!?!

    why would you put yourself through that?

    you said it was the 4 worst years of your life. you could have quit? were you hoping to get that elusive dance and drill team scholarship?

    and why would you knowingly subject your child to the same "cult"? even if my daughter's friends were in drill team, and i felt the same way you do, i wouldn't let her.

    plenty of victoriadores i knew had friends that were not victoriadores.

    June 20, 2010 at 9:32 p.m.
  • LOL...Wests looks like a tuxedo t-shirt....im cringing....

    June 20, 2010 at 8:49 p.m.
  • Actually, Red, I knew of the GOLDEN SABERS Drill Team, because I saw a "thank you"at a restaurant who sponsors that team. Very cute picture of the girls and the title of the drill team was posted.

    The East High School website is refreshing, informative and innovative. What's nice is that it is promoting a New School with no obvious refrences to a ten-year old defunct dance team.

    Seems like East High School has taken the high road (pardon my pun) and began to create new traditions, new memories and a fresh outlook to the future.

    June 20, 2010 at 6:48 p.m.
  • Has it ever occurred to you that maybe the drill team instructor from the East needs to advertise more?

    The only reason most people know about the East football website is because of MiguelT below. He puts the link up on almost every article. Maybe the drill team instructor from EHS needs to do the same thing.

    The conspiracy theories make me laugh. It's dance and drill team for crying out loud. You would think there is some huge war in Victoria LMAO....DJ is sooooo dangerous! She's gonna hit me in the head with a Vdore hat LMAO

    June 20, 2010 at 6:02 p.m.
  • You want to know what is odd? When a person researches West High School Dance Team, Victoriadores is all over the site, like white on rice. There's the matador hat outline and the dingleberries; along with the actual Victoriadores links. Thought Victoriadores was put away ten years ago. How does this keep on being connected to a dance team from Victoria?

    I grew up here and graduated from Victoria High School; so when the Stingarees were put to rest, along with other organizaitons' names, why did the drill team continue to be favored?

    Actually, I do know the answer to that question, but it still amazes me that after all these years some people get favorable treatment and don't have to follow the same rules as others.

    June 20, 2010 at 11:21 a.m.
  • cmomman I agree and I also believe that those who had kids on the team in earlier years need to do the same thing. This isnt exclusive to the last two years. and she will say, "I AM BESIDE MYSELF, I dont know what to tell you" Id put money on it.

  • What will the WESTIES boys who are on the dance team be wearing? Are the dance pants for them? Checking out the website for the WESTES, there are boys listed. Seems like officers have already been chosen, too.

    On another thread someone said that it wasn't anyone's concerning what happened to the "old unforms" since the girls all paid for their own. So if the girls pay for their own uniforms, why has the board approved almost twenty one thousand dollars for new ones? Just wondering. I do understand that the girls have to buy their boots, special spandexie sort of practice clothes, but these routine uniforms are paid for by tax payers.

    June 19, 2010 at 2:59 p.m.
  • MiguelT, hope I can make it down to Big Vic to check it out! Release the Beast from the East!!!!!

    June 19, 2010 at 2:06 p.m.
  • **sniffle**

    That's just beautiful RR. Makes me almost want to cross over to the West side.

    No, not really.

    I'm taking credit for it EdithAnn =)

    DO IT DJ! haha

    June 18, 2010 at 9:22 p.m.
  • O M G !!! RedRage--you are going to make me pee my pants! That is hysterical.

    Now you know what you've started! Thanks--

    And the dance team isn't going to get a name until August? School starts in August. What are you waiting on? Oh, yeah, RedRage to coin your name! Good job RR!

    June 18, 2010 at 9:05 p.m.
  • They haven't picked a name yet.

    Dj, if you're reading this, if you really wanna piss people off call them the Warriordores lol

    Victoria East High School Golden Saber Dance Team Booster Club will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Memorial High School Stroman cafeteria.

    For more information, e-mail phyllisquinney@aol.com.

    Seems like the "Golden Sabers" have been chosen for a few weeks. So, what's keeping the West from choosing a name? Aren't they a team already?

    June 18, 2010 at 11:32 a.m.
  • Names have not been RELEASED but the squad will pick a name in July....ok what is there not to be released at this time if nothing has been decided?

    June 18, 2010 at 11:17 a.m.
  • Some of you people crack me up! You have false hopes that these schools will be equal LMAO! There is no way of making things equal. One school will always outshine the other. Who is it? No one knows yet, but to sit here and complain that the West has more material is childish.

    If you look closely at the picture both sides have TWO uniforms. It just happens to be that the East has a ONE PIECE and 1 two piece and the West has 2 two piece uniforms.

    Then DJ states in the article that Victoriadores will not be used and you already have people not believing it..lol

    Jeez people, what will you complain about now?

    June 18, 2010 at 10:05 a.m.
  • Mr. Motley, Way to go. You have been a great AP at the HS, as I have had to deal with you wiith my child, and you were always very considerate and fair. You will be a great Principal.

    June 18, 2010 at 9:26 a.m.
  • Congrats!!!! Mr. Motley. The kids will enjoy him and he listens with his heart. Kids will become "Motley Crew". Can't wait!

    June 18, 2010 at 9:14 a.m.
  • I want to see the hats...any dingle bells on them?

    Pat, it was already stated that West was spending more money. Could be 'cause there are slacks on that side and not East.

    I have looked through many sites that create dance costumes and there are some outstanding ones that would have been distinctive, unlike the ones here. Maybe when we see the girls performing under the stadium lights, they will look more striking. We'll see.

    The East Grils (Golden Sabers?) looked fantastic on their picture posted in an establishment as a thank you for support, by the way.

    June 18, 2010 at 8:42 a.m.
  • Looks like there are a lot more clothes on the West side of the picture?
    Especially the long pants. Equal cost?

    June 18, 2010 at 7:55 a.m.
  • Im in total agreement, Kyle

    June 17, 2010 at 11:48 p.m.
  • Erotic Advisor is an anagram of Victoriadores

    Good riddance to bad anagrammatic words!

    June 17, 2010 at 11:21 p.m.
  • even though she said victoriadores will not be used, i have a feeling that some people will still try to say otherwise.

    i hope i'm wrong.

    June 17, 2010 at 11:11 p.m.
  • It seems the ground is now level at both high schools, the way it was meant to be.
