BIGGAR High pupil Rebecca Howat has qualified for the World Baton Twirling Federation International Cup, to be held in Florida.

Rebecca (13) will be flying out to the Sunshine State in August.

A twirler at just five-years-old, Rebecca is still a member of her local group, Biggar Twirlers where she is taught by coach and WBTF Master Judge Shirley Craig.
