The Flaming Flashes were actually the first

Most believe the Kilgore Rangerettes were the original drill team, but Gussie Nell Davis started the Greenville High School Flaming Flashes in 1928, before moving on to Kilgore. Though their routine also used batons and sometimes even trumpets, they did dance and perform half-time shows. The current director is very set on keeping some traditions and you will probably never see them "skip" onto the field, but it comes with the honor of being first...even if no one realizes it. :P

That is a very interesting piece of information. I'll have to pass that one along to my director she is a former Rangerette.
