    A HOUSE RESOLUTION to congratulate the Mishawaka High School dance team on winning their division at the Indiana High School Dance Team Association State Finals.

    Whereas, this March the girls' dance team of Mishawaka High School won the novice poms division at the Indiana High School Dance Team Association State Finals, the school's first state championship in dance; and,

    Whereas, this year's squad, fielding only one senior and a number of dancers new to the team, was compelled to build its program from the ground up, beginning in August with the fundamentals of posing and posture, rehearsed 6 days a week and ended the season with a total of four first-place finishes in five invitational events; and,

    Whereas, the squad's success this year is due entirely to its members' hard work, perseverance and belief in their own ability to achieve, with every member integral to the team's

success, including Jessica Bonk, Ally Gates, Alycia Harris, Liz Klowetter, Alyssa Lewis, Lauren Means, Summer Melton, Ashley Pallo, Abbey Schidler, Sarah Schmitt, Cheyenne Tjaden, Mikaela Velucci, Andi Zieglear, as well as director Christa Chavez and assistant director Beth Sikora: Therefore,     

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives of the
