SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – The Moniteau and McDowell Competitive Spirit teams earned bids to the national championships in Orlando, Fla., with performances at the UCA/UDA Allegheny Regionals Sunday, Nov. 14, at Slippery Rock University.
Moniteau took second out of 11 teams in the Small Varsity Division II finishing only behind defending national champion Bishop McCort meaning the Lady Warriors will be headed to Disney World for the national competition set for Feb. 11-13.
McDowell also earned a bid to the national competition by scoring high enough in the Medium Varsity Co-ed. The Trojans were the only team in that division but still had to score a national-qualifying total to advance. McDowell is the defending state champion.
The second-place finish at the Regionals for Moniteau came on the heels of the varsity squad taking first at the Laurel Competition Saturday. The junior high team was also first at both the Laurel Competition and the Regional competition.
Next up for the Lady Warriors will be competitions at Thiel College and IUP next weekend.
