NORMAL — In the Illinois High School Association’s inaugural state dance compeition, the Rochelle Township High School dance team has set the bar pretty high for future squads, finishing fifth overall in Class 1A with 68.92 points.

“I am extremely proud of them,” Rochelle head coach Kass Smith said. “I still don’t think they realize that they just beat over 60 teams in the state on a routine they learned less than two weeks prior.”

Struggling at a competition about a month ago, the Chellettes changed their routine in time for the sectional tournament, which Rochelle won to qualify for the state meet held Friday and Saturday at Illinois State University.
