ALEXANDRIA — Crosby-Ironton brought home a second and sixth place Saturday, Jan. 7, at the Alexandria Invite.

“We had an awesome first competition of 2023,” C-I head coach Rachel Norwood said. “Our varsity kick team placed second out of 14 teams, 0.5 rank-points from first, against some tough section and state-placing teams.

“We had a high-energy, clean performance and received our highest overall point total, as well as our highest totals yet in the individual categories of Degree of Accuracy and Routine Effectiveness. We will be working hard this week to improve confidence and technique in our varsity jazz routine before we compete against our Section 4-1A teams again on Saturday in Pelican Rapids.”

Aitkin placed ninth in kick and 13th in jazz.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

Hi, I'm the Brainerd Dispatch. I started working a few days before Christmas in 1881 and became a daily paper two years later. I've gone through a lot of changes over the years, but what has never changed is my commitment to community and to local journalism. I've got an entire team of dedicated people who work night and day to make sure I go out every morning, whether in print, as an e-edition, via an app or with additional information at News, weather, sports — videos, photos, podcasts and social media — all covering stories from central Minnesota about your neighbors, your lakes, your communities, your challenges and your opportunities. It's all part of the effort to keep people connected and informed. And we couldn't do it without support.
