Congratulations to the Bishop O'Connell "Knight Life Steppers" who competed last weekend in Annapolis, Md. as a part of the Omega Psi Phi (Theta Mu Mu Chapter) "Who's the Best in the DMV" event. In just their second year, the O'Connell group was recognized as the Most Improved, earning Honorable Mention.
Religion teacher, Mr. David Owens, and art teacher, Mr. Trent Jones. are the moderators for the steppers. "We bring in a choreographer to work with this group," said Mr. Owens. "They've grown from only five members last year, to ten this year. Anyone is invited to join in."
The Knight Life Steppers previewed their competition routine in front of an enthusiastic student body at the spring pep rally earlier this year. The group hopes to continue to grow in membership and find more opportunities to perform and compete.
