Prep’s Sapphires dance team took the state championship in division A-AA over the weekend, competing against three other teams for the title. This is the first time the Sapphires have captured a state crown. Teams competed in the required pom category on Friday evening, and finished Saturday with lyrical jazz performances.
Dance is offered as a team sport option at Prep. Next year, spirit (dance, drill and cheer) will become a recognized sport with the New Mexico Activities Association, the organization that regulates and supervises interscholastic activities in New Mexico.
