OREM — South Sevier’s reign over 3A drill continued on Friday night at UVU as it secured a seventh-straight state championship and 11th in the past 14 years.

South Sevier finished first in the dance and character categories en route to the state title. North Sanpete finished in second place — including a first-place finish in military — followed by Snow Canyon in third.

“I am so proud of this team. The Sensations are built on the foundations of hard work, traditions and love for each other. It’s always an amazing experience to watch a team come together and meet their goals. The competition this year was extremely tough. These girls have had to work extra hard to meet the goals they had set for themselves. I couldn’t be more proud of them for making it all pay off. We also couldn’t have done it without all the support from the parents, administration, student body and fans. Our support system is incredible,” said South Sevier coach Kelli Barton.

Along with Barton, the other coaches are Shauna Blake and Tiffany Moore.

Here is a list of South Sevier’s championship team members:

Radisyn Jensen, Marnee Johnson, Meg Mitchell, Nicole Barrowman, Brooklyn Chartier, Alivia Winegar, Madison Winegar, Brynn Palmer, Ali Ekker, Emma Leavitt, Hannah Gay, Madison Moore, Linsey Barfuss, Kailey Hansen, Bella Bagley, Kadence Clark, Sierra Anderson, Kenadee Anderson, Natalya Cornelius, Preslee Winkel, Ellie Albritton, Aubree Child, Kiersten Kingston, Kylee Basset, Taysia Thompson, Halee Jensen, Natalie Turne, Jersi Shumway, Jane Morgan, Lainee Deaton and Kambrey Marshall.
