2019 State Tournament

It was a busy MSHSL Tournament. Congratulations to the winners (below) as well as to everyone who worked to make this event a great show. It has been a pleasure to watch many of you who were sophomores when this site started and will be 2019 Graduates.

The highlight of the two days was the honoring of one of the matriarchs of Minnesota Dance, Wayzata’s coach Leslie Swiggum who is retiring after 44 years of coaching. She did so in storybook fashion with her team winning the Class AAA High Kick and Jazz state titles.

Wayzata coach Leslie Swiggum congratulates her team on winning the second state title of the week after being announced as high kick champions.
