The Oakville Tiger Twirlers are Nationally Ranked!
The Oakville Tiger Twirlers recently traveled to compete in the National Baton Twirling Association’s USA/World Championship Competition. The competition was held July 23-27 at South Bend, Indiana on the beautiful Notre Dame University Campus. The team practiced during the summer and prepared 2 routines to take to the competition. The team competed against High School Majorette Lines from across the country. They placed 3rd in the USA/World open High School Majorette Line Half Time Show Championship. They performed a routine titled “Halloween”. They also placed 5th in the USA/World open High School Majorette Line Dance Twirl Competition. In this category, they performed a one baton twirling and dance routine to Glory where they gave a shout out to the OHS Alumni & STL blues player, Pat Maroon. This is the second year that the OHS twirlers have competed at the national competition and we are so proud of their success. It was an awesome experience for the team and they were so excited to bring back top 5 titles to Oakville High School and the Mehlville School District.
It had been an exciting and award winning season for the Oakville Tiger Twirlers. They are enjoying growing their program and all of the performance opportunities that they have been given. However, they are most excited to perform at the football & basketball Games and cheer on their Oakville Tigers to Victory!
The team consists of Seniors – Hannah Phelps; Sophomore – Taylor Herrmann; Freshmen – Rylee Brawley & Taylor Phelps.
They are coached by St Louis Performance Academy owner & director, Emily Wicks Hawkins. Assisted by Abby Wicks & Julie Skaggs Round (OHS 2010).
Congratulations to the Oakville Golden Girls Program on their outstanding performance at the 2019 NDA Championships in Orlando, FL this past weekend. Both the Varsity & JV team’s performances made the finals! But the entire season is worth celebrating!
The Work is Worth it ~ the motto of the competition this season really was true! The Golden Girls started their season during the summer with their own camp where they had individualized instruction and began to identify their strengths and weakness at both the Varsity and Junior Varsity level. This fall, the Golden Girls performed at football and soccer as one large team, gaining experience together. As the competition and basketball seasons began and preparation started, the Tigers created unique and amazing performances for each team; JV – Pom, Mix & Varsity – Pom, Kick, & Mix. The dedication and perseverance of these student athletes has been so rewarding to be a part of! #oakvilleproud
A season of success!

Oakville High School is excited to announce the new Golden Girls coach – Kayla Hall! Calling South County [Lindbergh area] her hometown, Hall is an alumni of Cor Jesu Academy and brings a strong and varied dance background to the Tiger’s dance squad. In college, Hall perused a degree in accounting with a minor in dance while performing for the Rebelette’s at the University of Mississippi.

Shifting again, Hall moved to Florida to dance for the Orlando Magic in the NBA for 3 more years.

Camp 2014 was an EPIC success! The Tiger GG’s had a great time, learned much and was well reward for their hard work:
For the first time since its inception in 1974, Oakville High School’s Golden Girls can add nationally ranked to its title. The sixteen-member team recently traveled to Orlando, Florida to compete in the National Dance Alliance national competition. Competing in the large varsity division, the girls advanced to finals in both routines they had prepared. Oakville took fifth in large varsity mix and eighth in large varsity jazz, deemed the most highly contested by the NDA organization.
This is the first time the OHS Golden Girls have competed at the national level, qualifying for this prestigious competition at summer camp last June. The girls put forth tremendous effort all season long in order to achieve the accomplishment of ranking top five in the nation amongst large varsity teams.
