Northwest Suburban Conference Results!

Here are the results from tonight’s Northwest Suburban Conference Jazz meet at Champlin Park High School:
Group 1:
1. Blaine
2. Centennial
Also in group 1 not placing: Elk River, Coon Rapids, Champlin Park
Group 2:
1. Maple Grove
2. Andover
Also in group 2 not placing: Osseo, Anoka, Park Center
Congrats to the winners  – I had the pleasure to see all the amazing jazz performances to kick off the year.  Blaine danced first tonight and also won their side – is it a good sign for an awesome year to come?  1st dance in the state gets 1st?  I think so!  
Best surprise of the night: Andover.  Not only did I see the familiar face of Heather Holasek, former Spring Lake Park dance coach sitting at their table – but they also came out with a whole lot of potential to shake things up in their conference and throughout the state.  If you get a chance to catch their dance sometime soon I would.  Maple Grove impressed on side 2 as well – I won’t spoil the surprise theme for you, but lets just say I didn’t get the costume until they started moving and then it was such a cute match. 
Back on side 1 Blaine came in as the winner, showing their usual depth of ability and grace.  It seemed everyone on side 1 was pushing hard on jazz (at least for the moment) and it was great to see the teamwork come together for such strong early season performances – very few personal errors!  Way to represent NW Suburban Conference!

Stay tuned for Burnsville invite results tomorrow!
