NGU twirler named second runner-up to national title
Rachel Huber, the feature baton twirler of the North Greenville University Marching Crusader Band, was named second runner-up at the Collegiate National Championships this summer.

She performed her 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 as well as the Miss Majorette of the Southeast Region. Winning both the state and regional competitions qualified her to compete in the Collegiate National Championship at the University of Notre Dame in July.

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 past 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.

But she also plans to use her baton talent after graduation. "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. I also want to give back to the sport and become a national judge," she said.
