The kids have been working hard, but need to continue the trend. Regardless, we are very proud of these students. Let’s keep it going through the end of the season.”

“The show went well, but the students can still do even better. As I say every week, the students can’t get overconfident and they have to realize that things can easily change from competition to competition. If they get lazy, they could very easily take second at chapters. The kids have been working hard, but need to continue the trend. Regardless, we are very proud of these students.
