DETROIT LAKES-Aitkin won kick and jazz and won the Mid-State Conference championship Thursday.

Pequot Lakes tied for second place overall.

Crosby-Ironton placed second in kick and third in jazz. C-I dancers named all-conference were Meg Erickson, Marlee Zender, Abbi Eppelsheimer, Jordan Papenfuss and Emily Scharrer. Honorable mention went to Megan Waller and Emma Sanford.

"It's the busiest time of dance season but our kick performance has continued to improve every competition," C-I coach Amy Turk said. "That's all we can ask for. Our jazz had a few timing errors on turns but the choreography changes have come together.

"We are excited to work on cleaning the routines for sections Feb. 3 in Wadena."
