The West Linn High School dance team places first at Oregon DDCA Category Championships
The West Linn High School Debutantes are champions.
The Debs, competing at the 2013 Category Championships sponsored by the Dance and Drill Coaches Association of Oregon, took first place in the Kick Category and third place in the Hip Hop Category.
The strong showing by West Linn High Schools dance team capped a very successful first half of their season.
The Debs had previously placed first in Kick and third and second respectively in Hip Hop at both the David Douglas and Reynolds Competitions.
Teams competing at the 2013 Category Championships had to qualify to be able to participate. Each had to finish either first or second place at a local category competition or had to have a final score within the top 50% of teams competing in that category.
High school dance teams from 28 schools from across Oregon were invited to compete this past Saturday at Oregon City High School.
Teams now change routines and begin to prepare for the 2014 OSAA Dance & Drill State Championships that will be held March 19-22 and Portlands Memorial Coliseum.
