Triad dance team doesn't let ice stop them

TROY, Ill. – Sunday's sleet and snow fell at the wrong time for one high school dance team.

Girls from the Triad School District were supposed to be competing at the state competition, but the team wasn't able to make the trip.

Early Sunday morning the superintendent decided the weather was just too bad to allow the girls to go. So instead, they gathered at the high school to perform their competition routines.

One of the parents taped the dances, and they've sent them in for the judges to score. But, the team won't be considered for the state championship.

It's a devastating blow to the seniors on this team, especially since they were heading to state as the No. 1 seed.

"It's just a big deal to have something that special with people you're that close with, and share that forever," said Mia Thompson.

"And we dance for ourselves, and we dance for each other and we dance for the feelings that we get. But all year we work to go to state," said Paige Allan.

The coach wasn't sure yet when they'll receive their scores. But once they do they'll be able to compare them to the other teams to see what they would have placed, had they been able to go.
