Ramona High School’s Song Team returned from the National Dance Competition in Orlando, Fla, with the first place trophy for Small Varsity Team Performance and second place for Small Varsity Pom.
The national competition was held the first weekend in March and is one that the team has competed in for many years. Two years ago the team won first place for small varsity team performance and last year received second place.
In February the team won first place in a West Coast competition, King of the Bleachers, at Long Beach State University.
Hilary Stewart coaches the team with assistance from former varsity coach Sarah McCalister, who has been recognized for her innovative choreography.
The RHS Song Team includes seniors Stephanie Hoertig, Taylor Narde, Kim Meader, Hanna Szymanski, juniors Megan Corbett, Nicole Rogers, Dani Silvaggio, sophomore Brittain Cetina, and freshman Andrea Proctor. Most of the girls have been dancing from a young age and took lessons from various dance studios.
The team and parents thank the sponsors and supporters who helped with fundraising throughout the year.
