The Copperas Cove Junior High School Starlettes dance team won multiple awards at the recent Showtime International Fiesta Texas Drill Team Contest in San Antonio.
The school district said the team won a Sweepstakes Award, Judges Award for Jazz, an award for Best Novelty Dance, and took home best runner-up for their pom routine.
"Everyone bonded during this trip, so that was really nice," 8th Grader Isabella Garrett said in a press release. "We practiced hard to make sure everyone had their steps down correctly. That's why we did so well at the competition."
Roughly 35 teams competed in the competition, which was the last competition of the year for the Starlettes. The team will not compete in their next contest until February 2018 in Killeen.
