The Hazen drill team won the West Central District Dance and Drill competition at Kentwood High School last weekend and advances to state this weekend in Yakima.

Last weekend the 27-member girl squad got the highest overall score of the 22 teams in attendance at the District 3 performances of 4A, 3A and 2A teams.

In the 3A Pom division, the girls competed against teams from Orting, Lakes, Kennedy, North Thurston and Decatur. In the 3A Military competition, they competed against Decatur, Highline and Shelton.

The win was a repeat from last year, when Hazen was the 3A Pom and Military champions. The Pom category requires the use of poms, while the Military category focuses on precision and no other props.

“Teams are judged on technique, team execution, content and overall effect in all other categories,” wrote Kristin Sargent, Hazen drill adviser.

Other teams competing in the 3A Pom category included Kennedy, Decatur, Mercer Island, Bellevue, Shorewood, Shandle Park, Lakes, North Thurston and Mount Tahoma. Other 3A Military teams included Interlake, Bellevue, Decatur, Shorewood, Mercer Island, Liberty, Shelton and Highline.
