SEWARD, Neb. – Midland University’s competitive dance team picked up their second top placing of the week at the Concordia Invitational on Saturday. The Warriors, who won their home invite on Thursday, earned top marks once again in nearby Seward, Nebraska.
Midland earned a score of 86.26, besting the field of 10 teams. Doane University finished second with a mark of 79.36 while Dordt University was third with a 74.06.

“Our goal for this competition was to hit a routine with zero deductions and to receive top scores on the scoresheet,” said head coach Katie Speicher. “While we still a lot of work that needs to be done before the GPAC championship next week, the team walked away with zero deductions and improved their score since the Midland Invite on Thursday. I am proud of our progress so far this season and excited to get back to practice on Monday to continue perfecting the routine.”
Midland will look to defend their conference title next week when they travel to Crete, Nebraska to compete. The Great Plains Athletic Conference Dance Championship will be held on Saturday, February 15 beginning at 12:00 p.m.
