Local dance team earns grand champion honor

Posted: Updated:

Congratulations go out to the High Voltage dance team at Hopkins County Central high school after becoming the grand champion this past weekend at the Kentucky Dance Coaches Organization competition.

The distinction of grand champion is a first for the group.

The ladies won 1st place in the Hip Hop division and 2nd in the Varsity Pom category, before being crowned grand champ.

"It was kind of both actually cause we put a lot of hard hours of practice in and just to know that it all paid off, it was a really good feeling," said senior Briana Barnett.

Coach Vicki Fox said,"I have one son, so these are my girls and I cried. I didn't cry when they announced grand champs I cried after they competed because I was so proud."

The ladies will now travel to Orlando, Florida for national competition.
