JUMPING IN SYNC Peyton Collier, senior, and Kayla Bell, sophomore, do a front leap during halftime performance. “Since this is my last year dancing, I want to make it count,” Collier said.

With competition season kicking off Dec. 18, Dance has been rigorous in their preparation for invitationals and basketball games. The most recent competition was Jan. 8 at Crown Point, the girls placing first in pom and second in jazz. The team faces their Munster Invite tomorrow at 9 a.m., open to students. Captains and seniors Cali Petersen and Avery Beerling have fought to get the team in shape. 

“I’m very proud of our team right now,” Petersen said. “We wanted to really just step it up this year, and I think our scores say that we have. I just want to do the best that I can for my team and for myself and for my family. Team-wise, I want to at least place top five at nationals in both jazz and pom. ”
