The Starlites competitive dance teams continue to win championships.

Recently, the Starlites traveled to Virginia Beach for the United States Finals and won seven championships. The Starlites were also eligible to compete in the Champions Challenge for the overall National Grand Championship and won again in all seven divisions.

That is an especially notable accomplishment considering the Champions Challenge features the first place teams from six regionals across the United States and ranks the teams. The Starlites still won each of their championship divisions.

“I’m thrilled,” Starlites head coach Laurie Charron said. “I’m so proud of these kids. They worked very hard. They were determined that they would do the very best they could and they came out on top.”

The Starlites received a national championship jacket, and because they won the National Grand Championship, they will receive banners and a championship ring.

“They are really excited about the rings,” Charron said. “They are like World Series rings from baseball. So the girls are really excited about that.”
