Senior-Led Pomkits enter winter season

PomKits have taken it to the next level this season with unique choreography highlighting the strength of the team’s electric energy. 

Winter season means competition season which brings a whole new intensity to the program. 

“We’re working hard on our competition routine for this season as well as trying to bring in new and different choreography for the games,” senior Erin Oakley said.

The team tends to use more hip hop in their dances compared to other schools who rarely use any, so the competitions can be intimidating, but the Kits proudly show off their eccentric style.

“Our goal this year for competition is to showcase what PomKits are about, they [other teams] normally don’t have our style, so we show up to show who we are as a Pom team,” senior Kennedy Crenshaw said.

Along with a drive to stand out in competitions, the team is working on showing more of a variety of styles in their half-time performances.

“For the games this year our goal is to show more diverse styles of dance,” Crenshaw said. “We plan on showing more technical styles and adding more tricks to our dances.”

This season, the team consists of 20 girls with 11 being seniors. Because of this majority upperclassmen squad, the seniors plan on utilizing their leadership in order to reach success in competitions. 

“I plan to take initiative and lead by example,” Oakley said. “I want to support everyone as much as possible, so I can help the younger members become strong leaders for the team in the future.”

The team will be performing at halftime tonight at 7:30 p.m. during the boys basketball game against New Trier in Beardsley gym.
