This weekend, the Point Park competitive dance team traveled to Adrian, Mich. to compete at the Siena Heights Halo Classic. This was the second scored meet of the Pioneers competitive dance season.

“It was really nerve wracking because we went in there knowing Point Park won the competition last year,” junior Jayci Ross said. “We definitely felt like we had some high expectations, but I felt like over all we performed the best we ever have.”

The team placed fourth out of six teams with a score of 66.41. No team scored more than 80.00 in final averages handed out by the judges.

“We had a good time traveling as a team, and we went out and did our best when performing,” freshmen Katlyn Busch said.

Both the cheer and dance team will be traveling to the Spirit Against Cancer competition on Feb. 1 at Penn State Behrend. This will be an exhibition event for the dance team. Their next NAIA competition will be held at St. Francis for a tripleheader of dual meets.
