Sonics dominate home competition
NEW ULM — The New Ulm Cathedral Sonics hosted the 2017 Mini Meet on Monday night and showed dominance every step of the way.
The Sonics took first in each competition with a total ranking point total (TRPT) of 3 each in JV Jazz, Varsity Jazz and Varsity Kick. GFW Voltage took second in Varsity Jazz with a TRPT of 7.5, while Sleepy Eye Spirit in Motion took second in Varsity Kick with a TRPT of 5.
Sonics coach Missy Marti was proud of her team after their complete success on the night.
“I thought the girls did great,” Marti said. “We actually danced in Apple Valley on Saturday, and their performances tonight were a step above that. So I really hope that this is a sign of the season to come — that every time we perform — we get better and better.”
Marti said she couldn’t thank the parents enough after the event for the hard work they all put in. She said that there was plenty of preparation and time put into the event.
“We prepped for a couple months,” Marti said. “We start with meetings and then inviting the teams, getting the teams here, inviting the judges. So it’s a good two-month prep time and it’s over in an hour and a half.”
