Centralettes steal the crowd’s hearts

The Centralettes hosted their annual Lake Central Dance Invitational this past Saturday. This was their 21st LCDI.

“I like LCDI because we’re at home and we have the parents’ and fans’ support. The home crowd helped pump us up,” Emma Strohacker (10) said.

The varsity hip-hop routine started with some technical difficulties, but that did not deter the Centralettes from a great performance.

“It’s nerve-racking because you don’t realize what’s going on at first, but then you take a deep breath and realize that its fine. Everyone is there to cheer you on and keep you motivated.” Michaela Vuckovic (11) said.

After the performances, the annual turn-a-thon took place. The turn-a-thon is a fundraiser striving to raise money for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.

“The turn-a-thon is for a great cause. We donate money for the cancer research for the two women we do [the turn-a-thon] for,” Vuckovic said.

The seniors were then acknowledged, as it was Senior Nights for the Centralettes. For the seniors on this team, this was their last time performing on the LC floor.

I’m going to miss this year’s seniors so much because they were great leaders and really made me feel like a part of the team. I can go to them if I need help; I felt comfortable with them,” Strohacker said.
