Three girls earn All-Conference honors
ROCHELLE, ILL.—The Kaneland Girls Pom Pons team last Sunday placed seventh at the Northern Illinois Big XII Conference Dance Championships held at Rochelle High School.

It was the Knights’ highest finish in the three-year history of the NIB-12 Conference tournament, after having placed eighth the past two years.

“We are very excited about our seventh-place finish. Our girls have really been working hard, and our team score was 10-points higher than last year. Going forward, our goal is to be in the top-three at conference within the next two years,” coach Christine Carter said.

There are 24 girls on the Kaneland Poms squad that performs at football and boys and girls basketball games. Tryouts are held in March for the following school year, and involve Poms’ coaches looking for girls with good basic dance skills and outgoing personalities.

The Knights had three girls earn individual All-Conference honors last Sunday: Amy Grace Vanderschaff, Rachel Kowalski and Aimee Frost. Two other members, Amy Croft and Morgan Gillogly, received honorable mention awards. The other members of the Kaneland Competive Dance Team are Sam Ciccone, Kiley Roach, Kaity Eutsler, Zoe Haenisch and Taylor Heiser.

The IHSA Competitive Dance Sectional will take place on Saturday, Jan. 24, at DeKalb High School. From there, the top-six place-winners among the 16 competing Class 2A teams will advance to the 2015 State Championships, scheduled for Friday and Saturday, Jan. 30-31, at U.S. Cellular Coliseum in Bloomington, Ill.

About Competitive Dance
IHSA-sanctioned pom pons competitions (also called “Competitive Dance”) began in 2013-14. Currently, 251 Illinois schools field competitive dance teams state-wide. Dance routines are accompanied by music and must be from 1 minute, 45 seconds to 3 minutes in length. Judges evaluate the movement of each team’s members to the rhythm of the music, their body positions and group alignments, posture, expression of style, control, movement flow and continuity. No ethnic, folk or tap dance moves, nor ballet movements, are permitted to be included in the team’s routine. The average of four judges’ scores is the team’s final score.
