The team is made up of 32 sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade dancers from Athey Creek and Rosemont Ridge middle schools. The team danced for three minutes to a song mix called “Battle for the Tower.” Coaches Sydnie Bray and Karlie Gilliam worked with the team for four months to get ready for competition season.

For the first time, West Linn had two dancers place in the top five in Drill Down: Rosemont sixth-grader Bella Deeb in the novice division and Rosemont eighth-grader Nell Egan in the advanced division.

This is the third year that the schools have joined together, and dancers of all skill levels participate.
