NPHS dance team to compete at Sections

The New Prague High School dance team will compete at the Section 1AA meet at 11.a.m., Saturday, Feb. 9, in Faribault.

Sixteen schools are competing at the meet with three spots available in the state tournament for both Jazz and High Kick performances.

New Prague coach Kris Plambeck says that New Prague is in a very strong section, with Chaska, Faribault, Holy Angels. Benilde-St. Margaret’s and Austin all contending teams.

“We’re hoping to place somewhere in the middle of the pack and show the continued improvement for the squad,” Plambeck said. “We have a young team, no seniors, one junior and the rest sophomores, freshmen and eighth graders. We’re building toward next year when we are fully recognized under the school's activities department."
