Speedy Pepper Steppers Tops Double Dutch Holiday Classic
It was the trio of Laa’Neisha Jones, Peter Alvarez, Katherine Rocha and Shamera Davis which captured first place in the speed competition. The Pepper Steppers, who are coached by Stan Brown and Yatte Brown, defeated double-dutch teams from throughout the United States, and from countries such as France, Germany and Japan.
The Junior Pepper Steppers finished in sixth place in the speed category and were just five points short of winning a medal. The Pepper Steppers members are Jasmine Hamlet, Nadine Harrison, Tiffany Duarte and Akeela Williams.
The Pepper Steppers would like to thank the Rockaway community, along with the City of New York Parks and Recreation department for their support and contributions to the Double Dutch program.
