"The team had a super showing at regionals," said head coach
Jennifer Keith. "Traveling nearly three hours away to perform is
always a little scary, but the kids did a great job, and we're
hopeful to see great performances again at the sectional level.
"Of course, not having Mrs. (Abby) Curry with us was a hardship,"
Keith continued, "but she had a great reason —
she gave birth to her son Saturday —
and we thought that was good luck for the team."
