1/24/2013 11:52:00 AM Bomber dancers win at Farmington
The Bomber Dance Team had a busy-and successful-weekend fueling their confidence heading into the HVL Conference Meet which CFHS will host on Friday evening.
The BDT traveled to Farmington Saturday where they maintained their undefeated record in high kick. "In kick, we got a perfect rank score and earned our highest scores of the season despite some weird mistakes," Coach Madi Salisbury stated. "I can't wait to see our scores when we nail it!" Salisbury noted they beat out multiple AA and AAA teams including close-by Northfield. But Coach Salisbury assured us we haven't seen the last of the Hiliners. "We will be up against them at our home Mini Meet on the 31st and I am sure they will bring it!"
The team also premiered their jazz dance in Farmington. "We were up against some stiff AA and AAA teams, but I was happy with their first run in jazz," Coach Salisbury said. "With a little cleaning and practice it has amazing potential. I'm excited to watch it improve."
And improve it did! The BDT traveled to Byron Monday evening for the fellow-HVL team's annual Mini Meet and jazz showed marked improvement in just two days. "Jazz increased their score average by an entire percent without any practice. I am so proud of them for that. That is hard to do over weeks of practice so it just goes to show the girls' talent."
The BDT will host the HVL Conference Meet on Friday evening, and the team was glad they saw Byron's high kick ahead of time. Senior Captain Emilee Lorentz said, "It was good to go up against Byron since they are in our conference and we will see them again on Friday night."
Salisbury added the BDT's big kick win at Byron won't hurt the team's confidence levels going into the HVL meet, "We took first place by 30 points and we only had three Judges. That is a HUGE WIN!"
Excited to host the floor Friday, Salisbury praised the team's continuous improvement, "Peaking too early is a coach's worst enemy. I like that we are continuing to improve at our own pace. I am really excited to see what they do on their home floor on Friday night."
