Dance: Scores up at final Missota meet

Scores continued to rise at Missota Conference finale
Tiger  Dance Team coach Lindsay Jensen said she would have liked to have seen her team place a notch or two higher in the final standings at the Missota Conference meet held last weekend at Chaska but was encouraged by the rise in its scores.

Farmington finished sixth in kick and seventh in jazz at the final Missota Conference competition of the 2013-14 season.

"We had some tough competition at this meet," Jensen said, "but our scores continued to increase. At our first invitational this year we had a total of 249 points in jazz and Saturday we had 284. In kick we began the year with 278 points and this time we had 329.

"We are looking forward to working on our technique and kick difficulty at practice this week to continue to increase our scores at our invitational this weekend," Jensen said

Farmington will host its second-ever invitational meet Saturday at Tiger Gym with competition in both A/AA and AAA divisions. Twelve teams will be participating.

The meet begins at noon and concludes with an awards ceremony at 4:30.
