Toledo, OH—St. Ursula Academy is proud to announce that its Dance Team placed first in the large jazz and large pom categories at the Ohio Association of Secondary School Administrators (OASSA) “virtual” state tournament on March 13.
The first-place wins in jazz and pom mark the eighth consecutive year that the SUA Dance Team has taken the top ranking in these categories. These wins bring 19 state titles in the last eight years to the school.
Varsity Dance Team head coach Morgan Melchert said, “Every year, but especially this year, I’m incredibly proud of these young women. Through a year full of uncertainty, change, and disappointment, the team has worked just as hard as any other year. The dancers have learned resilience and adaptability through this process, and that the hard work is always worth it!”
Members of the team include seniors Lanie Herl, Molly Kalucki, Serena O'Loughlin, and Kate Polizzi; juniors Kailyn Blakeman, Zoe Lay, and Lauren Wainz; sophomores Reagan Ceglio and Kate Schraeger; and freshmen Macy Friemoth, Lily Herl, and Kamryn Morr.
