At regionals, she’ll attempt to qualify for the Level 9 Western National Championships, which will be held in Salt Lake City on May 4-6.

Sienna LaChance and Shaydi Huston, both Level 8, placed in the top eight in Montana and will compete on the state’s Level 8 all-star team in addition to the regular regional competition. They will battle similar teams from Idaho, Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Hawaii.
