Kilgore College:

KILGORE (KYTX) - Surrounded by hopes, dreams and years of tradition, 36 young women became the newest members of the world-famous Kilgore College Rangerettes dance and drill team this morning.

The announcement, made in a closed ceremony in Dodson Auditorium on the Kilgore campus, culminates a week-long tryout process of 95 hopefuls vying for a coveted position on the 74th Rangerette line. 

The new Rangerettes will join 36 sophomores to make a line of 72.
