Congratulations 2007-08 Lady Cats 

Posted by Sasha at 6:11 PM ET

Charlotte Bobcats: The Lady Cats selected their 2007-08 team on Thursday at Charlotte Bobcats Arena, naming 19 members to the team with four alternates. Here's your chance to get a closer look at each member of the new Lady Cats squad. Click on the photo of each dancer (here) to find out more about them.

Sidebar: the ECHL Checkers Checkmates continued their tradition of sending great dancers on to the Bobcats Dance Team. This year, recent Checkmates, Christina, Kaylie, and Jesi join former Checkmates Kristy, Stefanie and Stacey on the Lady Cats.
(6/19: Keata and Amanda are former Carolina TopCats. Keata was even "Rookie of the Year!" - james)
(More 6/19: Jesi and Jessica were members of the 2005-06 Charlotte BobCats Dance Team as they were then known. - james)
(boy, these Lady Cats are vigilant! Turns out Amanda is a former TopCat and former HoneyBee, but not a former Checkmate. Apologies - sasha)

Speaking of former Checkmates, one of our favorite former Checkmates retired from the Lady Cats this year. We'll miss you, Sonia! Lots of other talented dancers also retired this year: Ashley, Chimere, Erin, JB, Jessica, Kara, and Natasha, we wish you only good things for the future. I'd especially like to give a shoutout to Ashley who is getting married in the fall. Congratulations!
