Watch: Arike Ogunbowale Advances On Dancing With The Stars

May 1, 2018

Notre Dame hoops star Arike Ogunbowale and Gleb Savchenko danced the Salsa to “Them Girls (Chin Up)” by Whitney Myer on Dancing with the Stars. 

Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman and Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon tied for the highest score of the night, while Ogunbowale finished seventh of the 10 competitors. 

Ogunbowale's score was high enough to stick around as former MLB star Johnny Damon and Olympic snowboarder Jamie Anderson were sent home. 

Notre Dame is currently in the last week of classes, so naturally, Ogunbowale stated she will catch a redeye from Los Angeles to Chicago and arrive back in South Bend in time for a 9:30 a.m. presentation. 

Ogunbowale is the first collegiate athlete to participate in Dancing with the Stars. You can read how the NCAA has permitted Ogunbowale to compete in the show here: Arike Ogunbowale on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ forces NCAA into tricky two-step
