Dance Team: Brainerd dances to a 2nd-place conference finish
The Brainerd Warriors competed in the CLC Championship Friday, Jan. 13.
SAUK RAPIDS — It was a runner-up kind of night for the Brainerd Warriors in the Central Lakes Conference finals Friday, Jan. 13.
Brainerd finished second to Sartell in jazz with 593 total points and six rank points to the Sabres' 597 total points and five rank points.
“Jazz, we had higher scores than we did in kick,” Brainerd head coach Cindy Clough said. “We were happy with how we did in jazz. It was close between us and Sartell.”
In kick, Brainerd again placed second to Sartell. Brainerd scored 578 points and eight rank points. Sartell posted 598 points and four rank points.
“I’ll be honest, we’re a little frustrated where we landed because we thought we were possibly going to win kick,” Clough said. “A lot of scores we had last weekend in the cities didn’t seem to transfer over to tonight. Different judges. We actually felt like we had our best performance of the year in kick.”
Brainerd won the jazz title in the first round of the CLC giving them a co-title in that division and finished second overall in the CLC standings for kick.
