Islander Dancers Have Strong Camp, Chosen For UDA Nationals

CORPUS CHRISTI - The Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Islander Dance Team attended UDA College Dance Camp at Texas State University this past weekend not only claiming several awards but qualified for a spot at the UDA College Cheer and Dance Nationals in Orlando, Fla.

The national competition will be held at the Walt Disney World Resort on Jan. 15-18. The completion is aired on the ESPN family of networks. The Islanders won several other awards including first place in fight song, superior performance trophy, and over 36 individual awards to become one of the top teams at camp.

"The team worked amazingly hard all summer to prepare for camp and walked away with several awards," said coach Melanie Lowry. "The girls are looking forward to a great year and would like to compete at nationals if the funds can be raised."
