Blue Sapphire crowned Miss Majorette of America

July 29, 2009

The USA and World Twirling Championships held at Notre Dame last week confirmed what Beaver Stadium ticket-holders have known for years: Nobody twirls a baton better than PJ Maierhofer. The Penn State senior (and star of football halftime shows as the Blue Sapphire, the Blue Band’s featured twirler), has earned the title of College Miss Majorette of America. Maierhofer claimed the overall crown after winning the "strut" competition, tying for first in the "model" category, and finishing tied for third in the "solo" competition.
