Ohio State dance team celebrates its national championship.

Ohio State went 3-for-3 at this weekend’s UDA College Nationals.

The Ohio State dance team won the Division 1A national championships in all three categories it competed in, claiming first place in the pom, jazz and game day finals at this weekend’s competition in Orlando, Florida.

Ohio State won its first title on Friday night in the game day competition, which it competed in this year for the first time ever. The Buckeyes defended their titles in the jazz and pom categories, both of which they also won in 2021, to claim the overall D1A Dance national championship.

The Buckeyes have now won nine national championships in the last five years, and they’ve won at least one title in every year over that span. They took home first in both jazz and pom in 2018, just pom in 2019, just jazz in 2020, both again in 2021 and now the trifecta of jazz, pom, and game day in 2022.
