They competed with teams from all over the southeast. The team finished first in their round winning all captions. This qualified them to compete in the final round. In finals, the team had quite an emotional performance and received a standing ovation from the audience. The judges were very impressed and awarded the team a first place finish for the entire competition. This placement has our team now ranked #5 in the country!! The team will continue its national competition tour in Atlanta on March 2 and then at Winthrop University in South Carolina on March 16.
