Dancers from the Cutting Edge Dance Studio just attended the Spotlight Dance Cup in Gillette Wyoming over the past weekend and many of the girls have brought home some pretty big awards.
Among the highlights, Brielle Gorder was crowned champion of the Senior Dance Down, out of about 50 participating dancers. The spotlight is run like a true audition. For that achievement, Gorder will receive a scholarship, as well as an invitation to participate in the Spotlight Elite classes at nationals.
Grace Hentges, meanwhile, walked away with Junior Miss Spotlight in the pageant portion of the competition. To win this, she had to complete a biography, answer an onstage question, and perform a 15-second sho-off step, which was scored and combined with her solo performance score. The competition was tough, but Hentges prevailed.
See the remaining photos online for more details of the girls’ achievements.

What event(s) do you participate in:
Shot put and discus
What do you think contributed to your success making it to state:
Experience and off-season workouts.
Why did you choose to join track, how long have you been on the track team and what do you enjoy the most about being on the track team:
Track is a big thing in my family, so I’ve always wanted to join. I’ve been in track all through middle school and high school. My favorite part is how track is such an individual thing. I’m the only one who can affect my performance.
What else do you like to do:
Mow the lawn and golf.
Go to the University of Minnesota to be on track and study business.
Anything else you’d like to add (shoutout to someone who helped you, more info about yourself etc.):
My marks should get better soon.
In the light winds, the boat drifted easily toward shore as I missed yet another hookset on the paper-mouthed crappies staging on the edge of the shallows in preparation for the spawn. Slowly, I felt the back of the boat catch on something and turn with the slight breeze. I looked back to see a car-sized boulder just under the surface of the dark water and as I stepped down into the hull, I felt the transom pop loose from a similarly-sized adjacent rock. I clicked on the trolling motor and turned the boat out into the mouth of the bay and, once back in position, flung a cast out next two the large rocks.
By the time I had reeled up the slack there was a weight on the end of the line and I instinctively snapped the hook into place on a jet-black crappie that flipped and splashed its way to hand. The following cast was met with a similar take by a much larger white crappie holding in the area next to the underwater obstructions. As I drifted past the boulders, the bites became less frequent until I turned around and again approached the rocks, casting off to their left and just behind them toward the rockfall that marked the steep, eroded shore and the north edge of the impoundment. With a two count, I set the hook into a crappie that somehow I knew would be there in that little niche, tucked just off to the side of the structures. Locked in, I set about on a 100-fish evening, glued to the 20-foot radius that seemed to hold every speck intent on spawning in the bay this spring. In the ultra shallows beyond the rocks there was nothing, and if I missed that first take in the little area as my tiny tube dropped, there wasn’t much in the deeper waters between the strike zone and my boat. It was a spot-on-a-spot if there ever was one, as crappies from 8-to-12 inches in various spawning colors came hand-over-fist, providing a memorable stretch of spring fishing.
Other than the rocks, there wasn’t much to key in on, save for their relation to the on-shore debris as the bay was still without much springtime vegetation or any other discernible areas to fish. That’s what keeps those spots-on-a-spot secret and so elusive, their difficulty to find and sometimes relocate – though the GPS on my sonar stored the spot for future recollection. What’s more, it wasn’t the rocks themselves that held fish, but the slightly deeper bowl to their side that provided connection to the main lake. Perhaps it was the funnel that brought fish up for their annual spring ritual, or just a place with a little more cover over their backs from the eagles that occasional flew above. While one trip to the newfound spot does not a pattern make, it was undeniable in my journeys around the bay and its adjacent shorelines that it was indeed the spot on a spot for that moment in time in that location.
Whether new to the sport of angling, or perhaps just a certain body of water, finding that first spot-on-a-spot is a real victory as it provides clues to other key fish locations and a place to return to and adjust from as seasonal shifts and water levels and conditions such as clarity or forage as the open water season progresses. Whether it’s the wind-swept point of an underwater reef for walleyes, a piece of sunken structure for bass, or a corridor between some rocks and the main lake for the crappies I encountered, each spot-on-a-spot is a valued find for many reasons and a confidence booster on the water for sure.
