LEETON'S highland dancers have scooped the pool to show why they are among the best in the region.
Eight dancers from Leeton's Just Fling It Highland Studio travelled to Wagga at the end of July to compete in the 100th Wagga Eisteddfod highland competition.
The studio impressed throughout the competition to take out the point score trophy with 846 points ahead of all other competitors and schools.
The Leeton competitors set the standard throughout the day, with Ava Weymouth receiving a highly commended in the trophy fling for beginners 10 years and under.
