Junior Shelby Louk they went into this year's competition more prepared and confident than ever.

She said she was happy to send the seniors out on a high note.

"It was just amazing to be able to sit with everyone and then hear our names called and just know that all of our work had finally paid off. I think I'll never forget that," said Louk.
