CROWN POINT | Colonel John Wheeler Middle School's dance team won state runner-up honors last month in the Junior High Advanced Pom category at the Indiana High School Dance Team Association competition hosted by New Castle High School.
Although the team is comprised of many new dancers, their hard work paid off, said dance team coach Tammy Betz. The team is comprised of four, seventh-graders and 14, eighth-graders.
"This year has been especially rewarding and this team will be missed. These 18 hard working girls also balance other extracurricular programs, such as National Junior Honor Society and maintain A's and B's," Betz said. "This team worked very hard and showed that heart has a lot to do with dance."
