Here’s something to root for: the 2015 Charger Girls squad has been finalized, the San Diego Chargers announced Friday.
The 28-member dance squad was selected from nearly 300 hopefuls who competed for the coveted spots during auditions earlier this month.
From the first round of auditions on April 4, a total of 72 finalists were chosen to move on to panel interviews and final dance routines.
After a five-day audition process, the final squad was decided Thursday night.
The team is made up of women ranging in age from 18 to 30 years old. Seventeen of those dancers are returning veterans, while 11 are first-time Charger Girls. Fifteen of the girls are students, including two from San Diego State University, two from University of San Diego and one from the University San Diego School of Law.
The Chargers said the squad also includes a certified public accountant, social media director, medical sales representative and general manager of a performing arts & fitness facility. The roster also includes nine native San Diegans and one dancer from Sydney, Australia.
