"This year's team is a very strong team. Their passion and enthusiasm is definitely showing each and every performance. In most of our judges comments, they will note how great their showmanship is. These girls are driven to succeed at each competition. It has been told, we are the team to beat. That makes us very proud but also shows us how much harder we have to keep pushing to stay on top," says Bath.
