COLUMBUS – With a stellar hip hop routine to Missy Elliot, the Wilmington College Dance Team won the Division II National Championships Sunday at the COA Midwest National Championship competition.

"The coaching staff is proud of their hard work and dedication," said head coach Chip Dillon. "The dance program is only two years old. They placed second last year and placed first this year. The dance program was a great add to the spirit program."

Due to the lack of a Division III division, the dance team competed in the Division II Open Dance Category. The Wilmington College Dance Team National Champions are: Jessica Cherf, Hannah Bernthold, Saraya Arnold, Brandie Gibbons, Stephanie Belz, Ashley Fox, and Marcy Adams.

The National Championship winning dance team will hold try-outs for the 2013-2014 season on April 14. Anyone interested in joining can contact Chip Dillon by email: wc_cheercoach@yahoo.com.
