“I’m so proud of her accomplishments as she is following in my footsteps in the world of baton twirling,” Lizette Perez-Brown said in an email, “as we both have won many state and regional competitions. In fact, Maddy won dance twirl, 1 and 2 baton New Jersey State championships held in May and Regionals held in June this year as well.”
