Cardinal dancers third in high kick

It was a day to remember for Alexandria dance fans last Saturday as the Cardinals hosted the their largest invitational ever at Jefferson High School.

It was a day to remember for Alexandria dance fans last Saturday as the Cardinals hosted the their largest invitational ever at Jefferson High School.

Twenty-seven schools were in attendance, and the host Cardinals did not disappoint their home-town fans in the high kick where they took home a third place trophy for their performance.

The scores from five judges at the competition were the team's highest ever, ranging from the high 60s to a 73. Chaska and Sartell were the only two schools out of the 10 teams in the Class AA/AAA high kick to finish ahead of Alexandria.

The Cardinals also finished fifth out of nine teams in the Class AA/AAA jazz division.

"Having just finished putting together their jazz routine, the team was very pleased with the outcome," coach Christine Reilly said.
