Dance Team: Tigers open at Burnsville

Farmington opened its 2013-14 season under first-year coach Lindsay Jensen Saturday with an appearance at the talent-laden Burnsville Invitational.

The Tigers placed sixth among seven teams in Kick and fifth among five in Jazz. The Tiger Junior Varsity took fourth among four teams in Kick and fourth of five in Jazz.

Overall, coach Jensen said she was pleased with her team's first outing of the season.

"We were up against some tough teams," she said. "Many of them have placed at the state competitions in past years. Our dancers brought positive attitudes and lots of energy and that's what we needed.

"This was a good first competition and we can only go up from here. Tuesday night we go to Shakopee for the first Missota Conference Kick meet where we hope to see our scores increase."
