And a huge congratulations to all of our compulsory-level gymnasts. For the first time in club history, we have had every healthy gymnast qualify for state from the compulsory levels. And, we did it with a couple of meets to spare! Way to go, team! Now to get ready to rack up the medals! Goal sheets will be given to the Level 3 and 4 gymnasts at Saturday’s practice.
Additionally, the bar judges (Olympian Chellsie Memmel included) shared with us that Ayanna’s Level 3 bar dismount was the best dismount they’d seen in competition, maybe even EVER! This is a huge compliment and we should use this as inspiration going into State. Despite that sometimes the scoring is low or frustrating, our gymnasts’ hard work is paying off and the judges have noticed! Let’s really put 110% in as we move towards State and make this the most fun and most successful meet of our season!
