All competitive athletes dream of the perfect season: starting strong in their first competition, gaining momentum with each meet, and finishing their season by heading to the State Championships as a leading contender.
The 33 athletes that comprise the Lake Washington High School Dance Team are having such a season.
Their strong showing at the District 2 Championships on March 7, including first place in the Drill division, has capped off a near perfect season and propelled them to the State finals in Yakima on March 28 in all three of their divisions.
The District competition held at Eastlake High School is the most recent in a series of strong showings for these young women. Earlier this season they swept all three divisions – Pom, Drill and Kick – at both the Edmonds-Woodway event and the widely attended Salute to Spirit competition held at Everett’s Comcast Event Center. A few weeks later, the team competed at Interlake High School’s event and took home first in Pom, first in Drill and second in Dance/Kick.
The LW Kang Dance Team is coached by Lindsey Beck and assistant coach Carrie Robeson. Robeson and the team are dedicating their State Championship effort to Lindsey who recently had spinal surgery. Lindsey’s goal is to be able to travel to Yakima for the March 28 weekend and watch her girls compete.
As a special send off before the State Championships, the LW Dance Team will be performing all three of their award-winning routines at the Lake Washington High School on Tuesday, March 24 7 p.m. The event is open to the public. All are welcome to celebrate these fine athletes as they close out their near perfect season.
