by Mike Dalton
The CFHS dance team traveled to Totino Grace last week, and came home a respectable third. Grace took 1st and Sartell was 2nd.
Cannon's highest scores were in visual effectiveness and creativity, choreography and combinations, and formations in transition; they finished above both TG and Sartell in those categories. "That tells us we have awesome choreography," coach Madi Salisbury said. "Our lowest categories were in kick technique and height so we are going to focus on those things for the remainder of the season."
The Bombers had to perform without two dancers who were out with illness. "Despite that we had our best run yet," Salisbury said. "We had some mistakes but it doesn't have to be flawless until sections. We are excited about our results and continuing to be in the top three after moving up to class AA."
The varsity squad competes at the HVL conference meet Friday night at Goodhue, and the JV has its last competition of the year Saturday at Mounds View. The team is host to its annual Mini Meet on Thursday, Jan. 30, at the high school; doors open at 6 p.m.
