BATON ROUGE - LSU's Golden Girls are celebrating an impressive milestone, with this weekend marking the prestigious dance line's 60th anniversary.

Over the years, the team has not only fostered a strong sense of community between members, but allowed the women to see the benefits of their commitment to excellence.

A former Golden Girl named Haley Babb speaks highly of her experience with the team, saying, "We get to see the hard work and practice that it takes to get to perform on game day, it was a great experience."

To commemorate their 60th anniversary, the Golden Girls held a gala at the Old State Capitol. The gala featured each of the 13 different uniforms worn by the dancers over the years. In attendance were 175 Golden Girl Alum along with some of the original members from the 1959 team.

But, the celebration didn't end there. Saturday, those 175 Golden Girl alumnae reunited and performed at halftime during the LSU vs. Utah State game.

During the performance, each dancer wore a shirt that mimicked the design of the current Golden Girls uniform.
