State championship rings were presented March 23 to members of the Center Hill Dance team.

“I’m proud of our team,” junior Brittnie Sandridge said after the ring reveal, which was held in the PAC. “I feel very accomplished. We worked very hard for it.”

In December, CHDT won a historic double title at their state competition, winning both large varsity hip hop and pom. This double title made the team nine-time state champions.

CHDT also became nationally ranked for the second year in a row in February, placing ninth in the competition held in Orlando.
