SHS drill team wins state title
The Superior High School Wildcats Drill team has a state championship trophy to add to the trophy cases. The team competed at the Nebraska State High School Dance and Cheer Championshipsheld at the Heartland Center in Grand Island, Friday. When the event concluded, the Wildcats were the new Class C-D high kick champions, a title which had eluded them by three points the previous year.
There are four events which comprise the championship. Pom-poms, high kick, hip-hop and jazz., teams may compete in only two categories. The Wildcats elected to compete in the high kick.
The teams must be coached by a member of the Nebraska Coaches Association to be eligible. Team selection is based on the school's girls basketball team ranking.
Each team has one opportunity to perform before the judges. Scores are averaged among the judges with the highest composite score deciding the champion.
To qualify for the championship round, the team must perform a minimum of 50 high kicks. Should one team member fail to execute a kick successfully, the team is disqualified. Class C and D were combined for the event.
When the performances had been completed, the judges tallied their score cards and the Wildcats were named the best of the best.
As a reward for their win, the team will perform at halftime at the state championship game at Lincoln.
Stephanie Corman, coach of the team, said "I am very, very proud of their hard work and dedication. "Our motto is "Dance like there is no watching." We set our expectations high for this season and they were exceeded."
Members of the 2017-2018 team are Noelle McMeen, Brandie Simonsen, Shanna Utecht, Emily Tietjen, Zoie Cornell, Darian Brenneman, Payton Frahm, Madison Blackstone and Weslynn Williams.
