Friday Feb 1st was the State Drill Comp. The top 4 teams from each Region qualify to go. Being Region champs...Syracuse qualified... obviously :) It is always down at UVU in the UCCU building with the UVU dancers hosting it. So you know what that means right? It was a double pleasure for me. Got to watch Shayla compete, and then as a bonus, the UVU dancers (aka Mckena) performed between each category. It was fun for Mckena as she was introduced being from Syracuse, how our crowd yelled and supported her.

State Champs: Copper Hills (finally defeating Bingham who were 7 time champs)
4th: Lone Peak
Janci, Kenlee, and Shayla
I can not say enough about our great coach! The girls had such great sportsmanship, and hugged and congratulated Copper Hills. They held their heads high, and were not defeated by this loss. They were in great spirits, and all the juniors and sophomores were hungry to become better and already motivated to know what it feels like to be State champs, and said..."Lets do that next year, and do whatever it takes!" Love it!
On another note.. both my girls seem to be a little love struck right now. I think is is adorable but Rich.... not so much! Mr. protective dad has his guard up. But I'm always a sucker for young love/crushes...so I think they are both darling!
