Deep within the heart of Dripping Springs school spirit is Tiffany Tiger. Over the past three years, Tiffany has done a phenomenal job at promoting lots of Tiger pride, as well as making history for our school and mascots at various competitions all over Texas.
Tiffany competes at mascot competitions all over Texas, and recently was awarded third place at the Texas State Championships in the mascot division for her outstanding performance.
“Mascot competitions are always extremely exciting,” Tiffany said.
The annual state competition, hosted by UCA, requires mascots from all over to perform skits, dances, and promote spirit.
“I recently got third at the Texas State Competition,” Tiffany said. “It’s the biggest mascot competition in Texas.”
Tiffany the Tiger, who took the place of Tito the Tiger, has been making a name for herself ever since she placed at the state contest freshman year.
“I’ve done my best trying to fill Tito’s shoes and I think I’ve done a pretty great job at it,” Tiffany said, “I’m very well known throughout Dripping Springs.”
Tiffany has even caught the attention of people outside our town.
“I’ve been recognized by schools, college recruiters, UCA staff, as well as our Texas representative,” Tiffany said.
Although Tiffany receives a lot of recognition for her success at competitions, she admits that it isn’t just about winning.
“At competitions, I get to rekindle some old friendships with other mascots. It’s just an overall fun environment,” said Tiffany.
Tiffany has not only won over the hearts of people at our school, but even the huge crowds at contests seem to adore Tiffany.
“Every time I go to a competition, a lot of the crowd already knows who I am, and that makes me ecstatic,” Tiffany said.
