The Tomah High School dance team is returning to state.
Coach Sue Brown’s team earned a berth at the Wisconsin Association of Cheer and Pom Coaches state meet after placing fourth in pom at Division 2 Regional competition Jan. 27 in New Richmond.
The state meet is Saturday, Feb. 3 at the La Crosse Center. Ellie Eswein is scheduled to perform an all-state solo at 2:12 p.m., and the team will perform its pom routine at 4:18 p.m.
Tomah didn’t qualify its team in the kick division, but Brown is happy that her team will get to perform in front of a state meet audience.
“It’s awesome we are going for pom,” Brown said. “This will be our third straight year going to state.”
Sparta qualified its pom squad in Division 3 after finishing fourth at the regional.
The top four teams from each regional advanced to the state meet, which begins at 9 a.m. for Divisions 3, 4 and 5 and 3:50 p.m. for Divisions 1 and 2. Tomah will be the eighth team to perform during the second session.
