"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."
