Lakettes to host home invite Jan. 12

The Waconia Lakettes dance team kicked off 2013 with a third place finish at Belle Plaine on Jan. 5.

Head coach Amy Segner said the teams made necessary changes in both the high kick and jazz routinues, which allowed higher team scores in both divisions.

Segner has set her sights on Delano as a team-to-beat, as the Tigers have continually finished ahead of Waconia this season, and are both a conference and section competitor.

This weekend, the Lakettes will host their annual invitational where they will see five other section teams.

High kick competition begins at 12 p.m. with the Lakettes slated to perform at approximately 12:45. Jazz begins at 2:45, and Waconia will perform around 3:05 p.m. Both junior varsity Lakette squads will also perform.
