The Brainerd High School varsity Kixters placed second Saturday in the third annual Big Chill Just for Kix Dance Team competition at Brainerd High School.
Burnsville placed first with 242 points, followed by Brainerd with 241 and Eastview with 231.
"We really thought we were going to take it on Saturday," said Kixters Coach Cindy Clough. "We just can't seem to get by Burnsville. It has become a quest with our kids. ... But as a coach I need to keep reminding them that we ranked above nine other teams on Saturday and that was quite an accomplishment."
