The Lady Lynx competitive dance team finished second to Sioux Falls Washington for the fourth time this season. This time, the runner-up placing came at Thursday’s O’Gorman Invite.

The Brandon Valley dancers took second in three divisions: pom, kick and jazz, while the Lady Lynx competitive cheer team finished seventh in the 13-team invitational.

“We had a good night of competition, and are getting closer to closing the margins between Brandon Valley and Washington High School dance teams,” said BV dance coach Tracy Kuhn. “We have a lot of work to do over the next couple of weeks but still have our goals set high for ESD and state!”

After posting a top place finish at the Huron Invite a week earlier, the Lady Lynx dance team registered nearly 20 points less at O’Gorman to position the team in seventh.

“The changes we made to the routine looked great, which was the goal for the night,” BV cheer coach Katee Lane said. “We had a few deductions we will need to deal with, but we’ll be more than ready for the BV Invite on Tuesday!”

The Lynx cheer and dance teams hosted the Lynx Invite Tuesday.

“We hope to have our best event yet this season for our home crowd,” Kuhn said.

Next week, the teams will compete for two conference titles. On Monday, Oct. 14, Washington will host the Metro Championship and the ESD Championship will be decided on Oct. 17 at Yankton.
