The Vikettes jazz and high kick dance teams both placed eighth with 24 rank points in the North Suburban Conference Championships Saturday at Robbinsdale Cooper.
Benilde St. Margaret’s was jazz conference champion with three rank points. Totino-Grace won the high kick competition with three rank points.
“The team was down in numbers and had to dance with holes in the jazz and kick routines due to injuries and illness,” said coach Marie Ray. “We will be working on raising our technique scores and execution scores as we head into the final weeks of the season. We’re hoping to get everyone healthy so we can have a full team on the floor for sections.”
The North Branch dance team will compete in an invitational at Totino-Grace High School in Fridley beginning at 9 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 19.
