The EHS Poms captured top honors recently in two local competitions. The Poms won the division championship in hip-hop at the UDA Regional Dance Competition at the Denver Convention Center on Nov. 13.
On Nov. 9, the Poms won first place in hip-hop at the Jeffco League Spirit Invitational Competition. The team, under the direction of coach Debbie Cooper and assistant coaches Sandy Wright, Monique O'Neil and Jesse Florquist, will compete next at the Colorado High School Activities Association State Spirit Competition on Friday, Dec. 3, at the Denver Coliseum. The Poms are tentatively scheduled to perform at 4:45 p.m.; students and the Evergreen Community are encouraged to attend and cheer the girls on.
The Poms also will travel to Walt Disney World in Florida to compete at the UDA National Dance competition in early February 2011. Last year, the Poms placed ninth in the nation in hip-hop.
