Congratulations to the winners of 14 consecutive Ohio Star Ball Championships!

Whether this was your first or your final OSB, I am so proud of everything we accomplished together this weekend! I hope you all had a fantastic time dancing your hearts out and bonding with your teammates. Every couple scored the team points which contributed to this fantastic result, not to mention helping maintain the energy on the dance floor by adding your voices to our incredibly hype cheering section.

Thank you to all the leads who danced TBA with girls from other schools, and everyone who spent time working the camera and helping the weekend run smoothly in countless other ways. Also, a special shout out to the team board for all their hard work this semester to make this weekend a success!
