    Good day to everyone! Pls help me. Pls check my grammar...

    In the most awaited Teachers-Students tandem, the third year group had shown talent in dancing which resulted in retaining their being champion in the said event.

    most awaited- eagerly awaited
    had shown - showed
    which resulted in retaining their being champion in the said event- this is a bit wordy for me. How about:

    The past sounds better to me after the time phrase implied at the start of the sentece- it flows, rather than setting a scene and jumping backwards.
