Revolution dance team season ends

The Pequot Lakes Revolution dance team competed at the Class 4AA Section Championship meet Saturday, Feb. 1, at Sauk Rapids-Rice High School, ending its season with an eighth-place finish in the high kick competition and sixth place in jazz.

The sixth-place finish in jazz came in a tie-breaker after tying for fifth.  

“Alli and I are so proud of how hard the girls worked the last week of practice leading into sections,” said Revolution coach Amber Peterson. “We do feel that we gave our best performance at the section tournament.”

High kick teams that competed, in order of placement, were: Sartell, St. Cloud Cathedral, Sauk Rapids, Rocori, Alexandria, St. Cloud Apollo, Albany, Pequot Lakes, New-London Spicer, Melrose, Detroit Lakes, Annandale and Fergus Falls.

Sartell also won the jazz competition, followed by Sauk Rapids, St. Cloud Cathedral, Rocori, St. Cloud Apollo, Pequot Lakes, Detroit Lakes, Albany, Alexandria, Fergus Falls, New London-Spicer and Melrose.

“The 4AA section is a very competitive section. All the teams were fighting for their spots in the competition. We are very proud of this team and all of their accomplishments this season,”  Peterson said.

The top three teams in high kick and jazz will compete at the state dance team tournament Feb. 14 -15 at Target Center in Minneapolis.
