Once again, Eastern’s dance team found its way to the UDA College National Championships.

And once again they brought home some hardware.

The dance team finished in sixth place in the Division I Pom division and seventh place in the Division I Hip-Hop Division. The event was held at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Fla.

In only their second-ever national competiton under Eastern alum and head coach Laura Hazelwood, the dance team came away on a positive note, since they placed in the top 10 of the both divisions.     

The seventh place finish in hip-hop, the first time the team has competed in that category, was also a positive aspect of the weekend trip.

In last year’s trip to Disney World, the dance team came home with a fifth place finish in the pom division. They also competed in the jazz division, but finished just 21 out of 22 schools.
