It’s been just a little more than four years since the Rho Chi Kobras step team came in second at the national Music Step Fest in Nashville, Tenn. Now, the “next generation” of local steppers -- the Kershaw County Diamonds -- are aiming for the top, this time in Chicago. Back in 2010, the Kershaw County Diamonds was known as the Lil’ Diamonds, with members often stealing the show from their older role models at local step shows.
