Huskiettes Dance Team’s Annual Exhibition

THE HUSKIETTES DANCE TEAM performs during its annual exhibition Monday evening, its final performance at home before heading to the state championships on Friday and Saturday. So far, Sweet Home has finished fifth at competitions held at Liberty High School and South Albany High School. The Huskiettes will compete against 17 teams at state, with no divisions between small and large teams. “They have done great this year,” said Coach Kristin Ashcraft. “They have improved so much from last year. We received some very positive comments from the audience and other coaches. State will be tough this year. Our goal is to increase our scores, have a good performance and a great experience.” The Huskiettes were joined Monday night by alumni, Cascade Performing Arts, the Sweet Home Junior High dance team and Sole Expressions Dance Studio of Albany, owned by Sweet Home alumna and SHJH language arts teacher Chelsea Gagner.
