A crowd gathered inside the Showplace Theatre in Riverwind Casino Thursday, August 8, to watch 38 women perform and see who would be named to the squad.

Along with three Thunder Girls heading into their sixth season, Jada, LaTeshia and Shereka, 11 women are returning from last year's squad. Nine rookies will round out the squad.

Helping the Thunder staff select the squad were celebrity judges Gary England of News 9, Miss Oklahoma Kelsey Griswold and Joey and Heather from WILD 104.9.

"The Thunder Girls serve as ambassadors for our team, both on and off the court," Thunder Girls Dance Team Manager and Choreographer Paige Carter said. "We are excited to have a group of young women who not only are great dancers, but also can engage with our community of fans to form a positive connection with our team."

During their tenure, the Thunder Girls make over 200 appearances.
