About the Team
The Sapphires drill team is a varsity dance team comprised of 9th through 12th grade students from Wylie East High School. The purpose of the Sapphire organization it to promote school spirit, sportsmanship, and to serve as a performing group while representing Wylie East High School in the community, state, and nation.
Our 4-year program strives to provide dance and growth opportunities for drill team members. Sapphires are fortunate to be able to perform during the halftime entertainment at all Raider Varsity Football games, multiple Raider Varsity Basketball games, school pep rallies, dance competitions, and our culminating Annual Spring Show to end the year.
The WEHS Sapphires Drill Team is supported by the Sapphire Guards. Sapphire Guards are junior and/or senior young men that have a heart to serve the Sapphire team and their community. They escort the Sapphires to all games and functions, as well as participate in team spirit routines during games and pep pallies.
