2017 Drill Team Championship Results
For the 6th straight year, Hutch Tech High School won first place in the high school division in the annual Drill TeamChampionships& Step Show at Kleinhans Music Hall. Twenty-one precision “high techies” showed up and showed out with a powerful performance. (Pictured on the cover).
The Guppies (6-8 year olds) always manage to steal the show no matter who “wins!” The cuties representing the Aloma D. Johnson Charter School rocked it with their “JuJu on That Beat” dance number before exiting the stage. All of the guppies received winning medals.
