Golden Girls Earn Gold at State

Squad member Sophia Brown takes first in junior solos

The Kearney Golden Girls dance squad rocked it at the 2022 state competition, coming home with a championship trophy! The state championships were held Feb. 25-27 in St. Louis.

The Golden Girls earned two first-place trophies for jazz and pom and finished in first place overall. Additionally, Sophia Brown won the state championship for junior solos, competing against nearly 50 other solo dancers!

Their success at state follows the Golden Girls’ 10th place finish during their first-ever trip to the Dance Team Union Nationals competition in February.
