ANOKA-Brainerd captured two seconds in Saturday's Anoka Invite collecting 414 points for kick and 392 points for its jazz routine.

"We are thrilled to be moving in the right direction," Brainerd head coach Cindy Clough said. "Daily improvement is out goal. The jump we took from the Lakeville South meet to the Anoka meet is a pretty huge shift. It drew a lot of cheers on our bus.

Thirty two total points higher in a week. Our second-place finish to Anoka was so close by six total points so we are pretty excited to be moving closer.

"We need to get 9s and 10s as we move into sections to land in the top 3 of 15 teams. We are seeing a pattern of our lowest scores being in degree of accuracy and placement and control. These are individual issues that we have to continue to hone into and improve."

In Friday's Central Lakes Conference final, Brainerd finished tied for second with St. Cloud Tech. Both schools entered the event tied for first with Sartell, but it was Sartell that landed on top.
