Dance Team: Warriors miss out on trip to finals


MINNEAPOLIS — Following an eighth-place finish in Class 3A jazz qualifying competition Friday afternoon, the Brainerd Warriors failed to advance to the finals in the state tournament at the Target Center.

The top six teams advanced to Friday night’s jazz finals.

Warriors coach Cindy Clough said Brainerd turned in a “great final jazz performance but it was a disappointing finish.” Clough said the team danced third and had one of its best performances of the season.
