The Viewmont Vykelles had never won a drill team state championship until 2022. Now, the program is turning into a 5A dynasty.

Viewmont won a third straight 5A state championship on Friday night at UVU, winning two of three categories in the 2024 drill team finale.

Viewmont finished first in both the Military and Show categories, and despite a fourth-place finish in Dance, it tallied enough points to edge runner-up and rival Bountiful.

The Redhawks finished second in all three categories, while third-place finisher Spanish Fork was crowned champ of the Show category.

Rounding out the 5A top five were Maple Mountain and Cyprus.
