The Pequot Lakes Revolution dance team came away with a fourth-place finish in high kick against many of the teams in their section at Rocori High School on Saturday, Jan. 3.

Pequot Lakes earned a rank score of 12 behind St. Cloud Cathedral, Sartell and Rocori high schools.

In the jazz competition, Pequot Lakes varsity finished seventh out of 10 teams, with a rank score of 21. "Rocori was a tough competition," said Coach Abbie Schramm. "We saw the most competitive teams we've seen all season coming off of a holiday break. All four of our routines were solid, we were happy with how they performed. However, we lacked the unity and technique needed to gain top three spots with the varsity teams.

"We will make some changes with our jazz routine and will be hitting technique and skills hard this week," she said.

The junior varsity team took second place in high kick with a rank score of 7, and fifth place in jazz.

"We are extremely proud of our JV kick team," Schramm said. "Eighty percent of that team is first-year dancers. For them to pull a second place at our hardest competition of the year means that we have a strong team coming up in the next few years. They work just as hard as the varsity and it showed at Rocori. Coaches Madisen Watson and Melissa Holland have done an amazing job with the JV team this year. They took the cake on Saturday."
