Valentine's Classic Packs Arena

February 10, 2008, 6:04 PM by Karla Ramaekers

Valentine's Classic Packs Arena
There's dance fever in Sioux Falls this weekend.... Dakota Spirit hosted the seventh annual Valentine's Classic Cheer and Dance competition at the Sioux Falls Arena. 

The Arena was packed with nearly one hundred cheer teams from across the Midwest for one of the biggest contests they'll ever compete in.
In fact, there was such a big crowd, they had to add extra seating this morning to accommodate everyone in the audience.

These teams have got spirit.
And this weekend they're bringing it to Sioux Falls to showcase the spirit for thousands of fans.
Teams from Minnesota, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Iowa packed the Sioux Falls Arena with hopes their winning attitudes and smiles could help their team take home a prize. 

"The kids put hours and hours of time into their training and to be able to come to a big venue with many teams very competitive teams to really go after that prize," Robin Fritsch says.

Dakota Spirit Founder Robin Fritsch says she's proud to see the Valentine's classic hit a new milestone by being held at the 8-thousand-seat Arena for the first time. 

"Just to be able to know that we in the midwest can have a competition as great as the ones we've been to and competed at it's a great opportunity for us and a great opportunity for the kids involved," Fritsch says.

And a great opportunity for the coaches. 
Lori Domalakes coached her team to a big win today. And her piece of advice for the girls: 

"Realize it's not always winning that makes you a winner," Domalakes says.

But their winning spirit has these girls still cheering.
