The Napa Valley Patch

After a six-week audition process, the New England Patriots Cheerleaders have chosen their squad for the 2013 season.
Rachel Swanson, a Napa Valley native, made the cut. She is one of 25 chosen for the 2013 squad out of 36 finalists.
Swanson is currently completing her final semester at San Diego State University in the Didactic Program of Dietetics to become a Registered Dietician.
“Rachel brought her vivacity and charisma to the San Diego Charger Girls 2012-2013 season,” the Patriots’ staff said.
“Rachel is planning to move to Massachusetts to work with some of the most prestigious medical doctors in the country, working on the forefront of disease prevention and dietary implications with programs like the Clinton Global Initiative and Capitol Hill legislation,” they added.
“This is Rachel’s rookie year as a Patriots Cheerleader,” the staff said.
Swanson made it through the finals to participate in the annual Patriots Cheerleaders Boot Camp – the final phase of the audition process.
That was after she passed through the preliminary auditions in March .
The boot camp portion of the audition was completed on March 30.
After the completion of the final boot camp session, the squad chose 25 women from the field of 36 finalists to comprise the 2013 team.
