The Colchester dance team placed second in pom at the state championships last weekend in Vergennes.

It’s their second consecutive second-place finish after netting a similar result at the Northern Vermont Athletic Championships earlier this month.

The Lakers also placed fifth in the jazz category.

“They have been working hard all season and this team really pushed through,” said head coach Alex Poirier.

The Lakers will now travel at the New England Dance Competition on March 4 in Connecticut to wrap up their season that’s included a handful of firstplace finishes.
