It was only the second competition of the season, but the Saugus High Dance Team came away with 15 trophies for both solo and team dances from the Aliso Niguel Classic held Jan. 24 in Aliso Viejo.

Bringing home a total of four first place trophies for their outstanding solo performances were seniors Samantha Bosarge and Alexis Grcevic, Karissa Petersen, a junior, and freshman Megan Stokes.

Others who placed in individual events were Sarah Yuwiler who received a second place trophy and Kellie Janeski and Tamara Sosa who both earned third place finishes.

As a team, the dancers were rewarded with three first place trophies for the medium jazz routine to the song "Sophisticated Lady," the novelty number "Mercy" and the crowd pleasing, jazzy intermediate dance to the tune of "I Want Candy."

The team was also awarded the Best Costume award for "I Want Candy."

A second-place trophy went to the officers' dance by seniors Sam Bosarge, Alexis Grcevic and Sarah Yuwiler.

The team also captured the second place award for Large Lyrical, while Hip Hop, Small Jazz and Small Lyrical team dances received third-place trophies.

"The breadth and depth of talent is impressive, and this season is shaping up to be very successful, but the competition will be tough," said Bridget Groller, Saugus Dance Team advisor. "Competition is fierce with such wonderful teams in our own valley, such as Valencia, Hart, West Ranch and Canyon, not to mention the extraordinary teams like Thousand Oaks, Rancho Santa Margarita, Glendale, Matei Dei, El Dorado and Esperanza. So the Saugus Dance Team will be practicing extra long and hard to sharpen the routines to insure the best possible performance."

The team meets every weekday morning from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. Additional practices are held Thursday evenings in addition to weekend practices.

"Dance requires a high level of commitment and dedication to deliver a high caliber and entertaining performance and these young ladies give it their all week in and week out," said Groller.
