Weekend Preview – Last invites of 15/16

Well we’re at the bitter end here this weekend as we wrap up the invite portion of our season and head into the last push for sections and state.  I’ve been busy getting state tournament plans into place for you — stay tuned for announcements about state coverage this year as well as some new previews of the upcoming apparel artwork for the tournament…. Meanwhile, I’ve blown on out of the cold weather myself in favor of a Mexican beach, so I only have 1 weekend schedule to go over!  Usually, I spend quite a bit of time tracking down those agendas, but without my usual attention to work, I’ve been letting them come in on their own (to limited success).  Its not too late to get your weekend’s meet schedule to me for fan viewing – email those in to mnhsdanceteam at Gmail.com


Mounds View Winterfest: The JV’s will be having their day at the long standing tradition of having a JV championship day at Mounds View.  The Viewettes will be hosting a special honors day for those teams including championship medals – so nice to see that for our hard working future varsity dancers.  PM will feature a small A/AA varsity section as well as those teams tune up for early sections next week.


Metro Meets:  Blaine Invitational, Eastview Showcase, Smiley Invitational

AAA varsity action will be at Blaine and at showcase style events such as Eastview and the Lakeville South “show” event in the evening.  Showcases are all about the speculation factor as there will be no announced scores at these events.  Smiley should be a good last tune up for AA competition in the metro.


Out-state Events:  Dover Eyota Invitational, New Prague Invitational, Pelican Rapids Invitational, Detroit Lakes JV Championships, New London Spicer Invitational, Camden Conference Championships, GFW Invitational, Rochester John Marshall Invitational


Check out the action at Pelican Rapids as the 4A teams will be doing some final scoring before their huge (and competitive) section takes place in 2 weeks.  Camden Conference and GFW will be one to keep an eye on for the 3A fans who are trying to make sense of the field when 4 teams in each style will be advancing this year to state.  Dover Eyota will be a great stop for section 1A who will return to the site in 2 weeks for section 1A.
