The Alexandria dance team had a busy end to the week last week as the Cardinals finished fourth in kick at a Central Lakes Conference meet on Friday before going to the Rocori Invite on Saturday.

Alexandria finished its CLC meet ahead of Rocori and Willmar in kick, while taking fifth in the jazz routine.

“This is the first time in many years that the Alexandria dance team has beat Rocori in kick,” head coach Kassandra Gibbons said.
