Tickets will go on sale at 10:15 am. Spectators will not be allowed in the gym before 10:45 a.m.

Last year, the Warriors finished first in kick and third in jazz, making it to state in both.
“We have never been higher than second in our section in jazz, but this year we think we can do it,” Warriors coach Cindy Clough said. “We have been placing high and the jazz and kick teams are looking strong.
“We have come out ahead of everyone in our section at various meets, so we are hoping to do it on the day that counts — sections.
“We hope to have a huge Brainerd fan section to cheer us on. Sections are the most nerve-wracking and exciting day of the season.”
