Each year the Knightettes take time over Christmas Break to adjust their choreography, making it more difficult, visual, and creative. This past break, however, the Knightettes’ coaches, Marie Becker and Sadie Oraskovich, almost completely started from scratch, choreographing two completely new dances for the team. “For our first time competing with our new dances we did really well but, there is still a lot of work to be done,” said junior Brett Threlkeld, “it is a good starting point.”
Although the Knightettes feel that the new dances are going to be a great improvement for the team overall, they think it was a challenge for the team to master the new choreography and placement perfectly in a week and a half for their conference competition. “We see a lot of improvements in the future and hope to place higher than third, which is what we’ve been getting all season,” said Krista Lindseth.
Along with the All-Conference Academic award, four dancers from BSM were named part of the All-Conference dance team: seniors Krista Lindseth, Natalie Guggenberger, Annemarie Hittler, and junior Brett Threlkeld. All-Conference honorable mention went to seniors Elle Mohs, Nicole Kivo, junior Natalie Dorsey, and sophomore Maddy Moore.
