Game Summary





LTDT Falls Short of Qualifying Cutoff

MUNDELEIN HIGH SCHOOL- The Lane Tech Dance team traveled out to Mundelein High School Saturday morning for IHSA Dance sectionals. 


The team was looking for a ticket to IHSA Dance state finals, but needed a top 6 finish in the 16 team 3A-1 group. The main group was the team’s jazz subunit, specializing in a certain rhythm of dance requiring jazz style music. The team put on an eye catching performance and made it very hard for the judges to determine placements. The judges awarded the Lane Tech dance team with an overall score of 78.63.


In the end, however, Stagg High School finishes atop the other 15 schools with a total score of 87.67. Lane anxiously awaited the scoring for the rest of the top 6, hoping to be included. Unfortunately, the Lane Tech dance team fell just 2.44 points short of 6th place (Niles West with a score of 81.07). Despite not reaching the top 6, a 7th place finish ensured great moral victories over opposing inner city schools such as Taft (9th) and Lincoln Park (15th).


Despite not qualifying for IHSA Dance state finals, the Lane Tech dance team will still be participating in IDTA Dance state finals in mid february. They had previously qualified for this competition earlier in the year, and look forward to redeeming themselves after a heartbreaking sectional competition.
