The county Board of Supervisors has recognized the Dominion High School Dance team for bringing home Loudoun County’s first-ever national championship at the National Dance Alliance’s National Dance Competition in Orlando, FL in February.
It was Dominion’s ninth appearance at the National Dance Competition, and the team finished first in the Hip Hop Division ahead of 70 other teams. Dominion also earned the Innovative Choreography Award at the competition.
The team is coached by Josh Alexander, Anand Kao, and Clara Kao and includes Aden Vinnacombe, Aida Filipour, Alex Schulz, Ashley Nguyen, Connor Calohan, Devin Freeman, Eleni Molina, Kavitha Viswanadhan, Krystal Wilder, Mahika Shetty, Molly Harrington, Monique Guilbault, Noemi Reyes, Sara Lopez, and Ty Powell.
Supervisors also recognized Dominion High School junior Jack Creamer for winning back-to-back state wrestling championships.
In February, Creamer finished first place in his 113-pound weight bracket at the Virginia High School League 4A state championships, ending with a perfect record of 44-0 with 35 pins. He defeated Great Bridge sophomore Logan Pierson.
That marked Creamer’s second consecutive state wrestling championship, as last year he won the title in the 106-pound bracket and was named Power Train and LoCoSports Athlete of the Month.
Supervisors also recognized the Dominion High School’s Girls Swim Team, which finished first in the 200-yard medley relay at the Virginia High School League’s 4A swim meet in Richmond.
Supervisors unanimously passed all three ceremonial resolutions recognizing the students’ achievements Thursday, April 18.
