The Southwestern Community College Dazzlers drill team received a “I” rating, placing third in the state in the pom category, at the 2014 Iowa State Dance Championships, held December 5-6, at Wells Fargo arena in Des Moines.
This is the first time SWCC’s team has received a one rating and placed at the state competition. Melisa Crook, second year coach for the team, could not be happier. “I am so proud of them,” stated Crook. “At state dance, it’s very competitive and you must get a “I” rating to place. Not all the participants in this category even received “I” ratings.”
