For the sixth year in a row, the Brainerd Warrior Dance Team claimed the conference championship Saturday at St. Cloud Tech High School.
In the kick division, Brainerd was first, Apollo was second, Tech was third, Sauk Rapids was fourth, Willmar was fifth and Alexandria was sixth.
The junior varsity team also came in first place in the kick division.
Three teams competed in the jazz division and Brainerd took third place. Jazz does not count toward the conference title, said Coach Cindy Clough.
The following students were named All-Conference: Jessie Klein, Jamie Guderian, Christina Sanow, Amanda Gfroerer, Emily Stricker and Val Heath. Honorable mentions were Shannon Thiffault and Jordon Berg.
The dance team will host a mini-meet at the high school tonight where it will begin a new routine.
"The new routine will feature a mix of traditional cancan music with 'If You Can Cancan' from Moulin Rouge," said Clough. "The Kixters are using cancan skirts with purple and red ruffle, which is a whole new look."
