CSHS – If the “Falcon Pride Marching Band” travels to McClintock High School for tonight’s game between the Falcons and the hosting Chargers, fans will see Songee Barker performing her twirling routine with a baton flaming at both ends. How do you do that, Songee?!

On Saturday morning, Songee, a diver, will exchange her twirler’s costume for a bathing suit, as she and fellow seniors Belen Enguidanos and Garrett Swanson lead the Cactus Shadows Swim & Dive qualifiers into the 4A Conference - Division I State Championships at Kino Pool, Kino Junior High School, Mesa.
