    Why would Brainerd be DQ'd for a move that was OK by the judges at the Apple Valley Invitational? I hope Brainerd can appeal the DQ.

    I don't believe that the move was intentionally choreographed to be illegal, but was executed in a way (adrenaline kicks in) where it was no longer legal.

    What was the move in question?

    So Chaska did AA Jazz at Maple Grove and AA Kick at Holy Angels?

    What were the standings for Single A at the Maple Grove meet?

    Yes Chaska did Jazz at Maple Grove and Kick at Holy Angels. I heard that they actually got a -3 deduction per judge at Holy Angels and that they would have won kick at Holy Angels.
