The Patterson Lumberjills finished 2-1 at Central Catholic’s Lady Eagle Christmas Classic this weekend with wins against Central Catholic and Terrebonne while falling to Ellender.
The Morgan City High Fancy Dancers excelled at a regional competition at Thibodaux High School in December, as the team was the overall highest scoring team at the event. At the event, the Fancy Dancers also won trophies in the three categories they competed, earning first-place finishes in High Kick and Pom Pom
and second-place in Hip Hop. The team also won another trophy for their High Kick routine. The trophy was given to the team at the event who the judges felt performed the most original and best choreographed routine. The team’s sponsor, Courtney Matherne, choreographed the routine. The Fancy Dancers will be traveling to the CajunDome in Lafayette to compete in the American All-Star State Dance Competition in January. They then will travel to Orlando, Florida, at Walt Disney World to compete in American All-Star National Competition in February. The Fancy Dancers include, kneeling from left, OzZanay Jones, Jamie Scioneaux and Erinique Wilson. On the middle row are Paige Landry, Cassie Giroir, Ta'Nyre Thomas, Noelle Topham and Ali Tregle.
