Mount Anthony No. 1 in Pom
MISSISQUOI — The Mount Anthony dance team climbed to the top of the podium on Saturday, scoring a victory in the Pom division in the opening meet of the year.
It was a rough start to the day, according to MAU coach Erica Cummings.
"The heater and defroster went in the bus about a half-hour into the trip, so we had to wait for another bus," Cummings said. "The girls came together [after that] and really performed well. One of the comments from the judges said it looked like they were having fun performing."
Mount Anthony was fourth overall in the other discipline, Jazz.
The Patriots travel back north next weekend when they go to Colchester.
