Sacha Duran has long had a passion for dance. So when Bob Hope High School began a dance team, The Eaglettes, she wanted to try out and see how it went.

“When I came to Bob Hope, they started a cheer team and I joined,” she said. “I’ve always been interested in dance.”

Duran, who is a senior, said she hopes to continue to participate in dance after high school.

“It’s harder in college, but hopefully I will,” she said.
