Still kicking after 40 years

Published Oct. 2, 2005

Devilettes from the past 40 years reunited Saturday at the St. Petersburg High School homecoming game against Lakewood. The dance squad that began in 1957 and have been known for its kick line appeared in a post-game performance. Present and past Devilettes, some from as far back as 1957, danced, cheered _ and kicked _ together.

Cathy Gagliardo, a Devilette in 1989 and 1990 and a former squad captain, kicks during the group's performance.

Jane Ann Holler Burch, Jeannie Pittman Hereitage, Linda Graham Harvey, Marie Simmons Vidal and Linda Feathers Futch cheer on the sidelines. The women were Devilettes in 1959.

Lori Taylor, a 1974 Devilette, pins a corsage on sponsor Kathy Goodman during the football game. Behind them are a group of Devilettes: Mary Blankenship, 1970; Flo Searles, the mother of three Devilettes sitting next to her; Patty Rogozenski, 1973; and Linda Fraze, 1981.
