The list of musical works by English composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor (1875–1912) — a graduate of the Royal College of Music in London — includes over one hundred compositions written in the classical style of the late-Victorian and Edwardian periods: operas, cantatas, ballets, symphonic works, instrumental compositions, theater music and songs.

Competing in team, solo, pairs, and two-baton events in the Maine Games State Baton Twirling Championships, Scully has been a part big part of every twirling event offered by the Pine Tree State's official State Games.

In 2004 and 2005, she also ran in the Maine Games State Track and Field Championships at Fitzpatrick Stadium, in Portland, winning a gold and two silver medals in the 50m and 100m, respectively.
