Zimmerman Dance Team earned the runner-up position in the Granite Ridge Conference meet on Thursday evening in Becker.
Zimmerman placed second behind St. Cloud Cathedral in both jazz and high kick, with a “Glam” theme for jazz and a “Criminal” theme for kick.
“The girls have been working hard,” said coach Jenessa Kraus, “to achieve their goal of going to state for the first time.”
Four of the eight GRC schools participated. Becker placed third and Albany fourth.
Next for the Thunder is Mounds View Invitational on Saturday. Their sectional will be Feb. 9 at North Branch.
