The Golden Girls are the twirlers for the Golden Wave Marching Band.
Tryout eligibility is limited to students enrolled at Baylor or incoming freshmen who have already been accepted for admittance to Baylor University for the fall semester. Proficiency on a musical instrument is not a prerequisite. Our recent tradition is to have a 4-person Golden Girl squad but the number of positions may be flexible.

The current Golden Girls for 2019-2020 are:
