BU Dance Team Tournament Day 3 - #10 Amanda Looney vs. #1 Jaime Beith

Another great day of voting leaves us with another winner - Emily Plucinak moves onto the second round to face Kimie Matsuo. Emily squeezed it out getting 31/61 votes. Congrats to you Emily.

Today's matchup puts up the BUDT co-captain against BU newcomer. Experience vs. youth? You decide.

Once again, before you look into the bios/pictures I remind you to keep the following factors in mind when determining a winner:

- Dancing abilities
- Spirit
- How well you think she cooks
- Smile
- Skills in a mud wrestling cage fight
- Driving abilities
- Provided bio

Keeping all this in mind I present to you the competitors:

#10 Amanda Looney

: Amanda Looney
Number: 10
Hometown: Wakefield, MA
Education: CAS '08 - Political Science
Dance Background: Studio dance since age 5, competing since age 9
Campus Involvement: Habitat for Humanity, working at FitRec teaching children's dance classes and working the front desk
Interesting Fact: My friends and I from high school started a Habitat for Humanity group and every summer since have traveled down the east coast building houses for a week in the summer. It's the best week every year by far!
Career Goals: I would like to work in either Public Health or as a legal rep - the sky's the limit!

This all comes from her provided bio on the BUDT official website. I can also tell you that Amanda is indeed the co-captain of the Terrier dancers. I've always been confused about that though because the other "co-captain" is only identified as "captain" on their site (and their programs). Regardless, Looney is a leader.

She also works at the front desk of the FitRec and always greets me with a smile and a pleasant "hello hot dog."

#1 Jaime Beith

Name: Jaime Beith
Number: 1
Hometown: Franklin, PA
Education: CGS'11 - Biology with specialization in Ecology and Conservation Biology

So what's the skinny on Jaime? Well, first her last name is pronounced like "Keith" with a "B" instead of a "K." I know you were wondering.

Jaime sang the National Anthem at the last two basketball games of the year (for me at least). You know what happened each time she sang? BU basketball won. Coincidence? I think not. I must say, it was probably the best sung National Anthem in Case the entire year.

Another thing I would like to point out is that Jaime is short. Not that is a bad thing at all. She's the shortest on the team. I only say this in hopes that you consider it when judging who would win in a mud wrestling cage fight. Just sayin'.

Both wonderful, but someone must win. Only you can decide who advances. Vote now!

And feel free to discuss the daily matchups/bracket in the comments section. We don't even care if you keep your identity anonymous!

Voting is now closed. Congratulations to Jaime as she receives 71% of the vote and moves onto the second round.
