Cassidy Conley, 16 year old daughter of Darrin and Crystal Conley, lives in Sandridge, Calhoun Co. and attends Calhoun Co. Jr. Sr. High School, where she is a junior. She also has a younger brother, Chase.
Although Cassidy has been twirling for close to 2 years, she has been achieving goal after goal. She is in her second year as "Feature Twirler" with the Calhoun Co. Marching Band, under the direction of Logan Rhodes and Jordan Thompson. Her other love is dancing and she won the school talent show for the past 2 years with her dancing artistry, choosing not to enter this year.

She also entered WV State events (WV contestants only). She chose to enter Divisions (classes above Novice that she could have entered). Her mother, Crystal, and her coach, Lorraine Bailey, of Orma, both agreed to her decision.
