The Saint Mary cheer and dance team performed at the Sterling Spirit Invitational this weekend. The dance team finished first for the second week in a row while the cheer team placed fifth. There were five teams competing at the event including: Kansas Wesleyan, Sterling, Bethel, Saint Mary, and Central Christian.

Head Coach Morgan Conrad was proud of her team's performances saying, " This is an exciting time for the program with back to back first place finishes by the dance team. We got some great feedback from the judging panel and have plenty of work to do to prepare for the conference competition this week. I'm very proud of both teams."
