Victoria and her sister Kasey have returned from Mt. Vernon, Washington, with a championship title in their hands.

Kasey also did extremely well and won the second runner-up for the 14 and 15 age category, as well as winning first in the solo “Jig in July” competition.

Both hard-working dancers are students of Liela Cooper.
