Here are your 2009-10 Washington Wizard Girls. By my count there are 12 returning vets from last season and eight rookies (including the Final Wizard Girl who will be chosen in online voting.)
You may recognize one of the rookies. GeNienne was a Washington Redskins Cheerleader for 8 seasons. She represented her squad at the 2004 Pro Bowl and graced the cover of the Redskins Cheerleaders Swimsuit Calendar twice.
GeNienne had retired from the Redskins after the 2006-07 season. She and former Redskins Cheerleaders teammate Sooin started their own business (Sideline Prep) to help dancers prepare for auditions. They were awarded the contract to run the prep classes for the Redskins and the Wizards.
While GeNienne was running the Wizard Girls prep classes this spring, she started thinking about giving it a go one more time. And on Thursday, less than 48 hours before auditions, she made the decision to try out.
