Pekin dance team wins big

Eastern’s fantastic four traveled to Lafayette Saturday and brought home not one, but two state championships from the Indiana High School Dance Team Association competition.
The Starz, which has only one senior, Shae Calfee, won in both Scholastic Pom and Scholastic Jazz.
Other members of the team include two freshmen Sarah McBride and Madison Grosvenor and a junior Natalie Adamson.
The road to Saturday’s titles was a long and difficult one according to head coach Haley Chism.
“We began conditioning and technique at the beginning of summer,” she said. “The team learned their competitive routines late August, with our first competition hosted in December.”
