Mountain Express is definitely starting to find their feet in the clogging world.  They were named the Grand Champion Tiny Tot team with their 4 or more couple hoedown.  They also competed in the traditional line category where they placed 3rd. 
       
Mountain Edition Hoedown had a very strong showing, placing 2nd in the elementary age division. In the 4 or more couple precision category, Mountain Edition really put on a great performance, placing 1st. 
       
Mountain Wildfire Traditional Line to "Rocky Top" was really sharp and placed 1st in a very strong elementary division Mountain Wildfire Line Formation once again impressed everyone watching, including the judges that awarded them 3rd place..
Shady Grove Hoedown represented us very well in a tough division and had to overcome many challenges along the way. Shady Grove Precision looked really sharp..Hey notice these two on the front row?  They can really do this!
Mountain Rhythm - Adult Traditional Line - Great dance and good job placing 2nd in this competitive category.  Shady Grove  /  Jocassee Storm Traditional Line to "21 Candles" has still got to be one of the best Trad. Line Routines out there...
