Weekend Preview – New Year Invitationals

It’s 2014 folks!  We’re ready for a new year and some new meets to shake up the standings and take dance team to a new level.  Here’s whats going on this weekend:


Alexandria Invitational:  The alex meet is usually a huge day for northern AA and much of A.  Section 4AA will go up against each other with teams from St. Cloud area looking to battle it out.  In class A, Montevideo joins the class A mix for the first time against section rivals from YME, BOLD, and LqPV.  Section 4 powers include Pelican Rapids, Frazee, and Crosby Ironton.  Should be interesting to see how sections 3 and 4 stack up this year.   We’ll also get our first look at YME’s jazz dance this year at this meet.  Notable absence would be Aitkin sitting this one out this year.


Belle Plaine Invitational:  This one will be a few key section 2A matches and an eclectic mix of sections from AA.  Mound Westonka will look to get off to a solid start in 2014, with appearances by Willmar and Fergus Falls in this mix for the first time.


Henry Sibley Invitational:  This is the big one for AAA this weekend, with Faribault matching up against Henry Sibley, Rogers, Champlin Park, Forest Lake, and Chanhassen teams.  Section 1AA rivals Byron and Kasson will match up in the AA field.


Renville County West Invitational:  A small class A invitational for section 3A.  No schedule at release.


Plainview Invitational:  Class A invitational for section 1A teams.  No schedule at release.
