NO PRACTICE TODAY FOR YESTERDAY’S COMPETITORS — Normally, we would start the weekly post with our state success wall additions, but today, we have an important message regarding tonight’s practice that we need to share immediately.
We’re giving the optionals who competed yesterday a well-deserved day off on Monday, March 30. All gymnasts who normally practice on Mondays that didn’t compete yesterday will practice. In addition, all TOPs gymnasts, regardless of whether or not they competed yesterday will have TOPs today from 4-6:30 p.m. (we’ve added an extra hour to make up for previous missed time).
STATE SUCCESS WALL ADDITIONS — Parents, you have every reason to be proud of your gymnasts. We had several season highs and virtually everyone improved on last year’s state score, many by several points. We took home more than twice as many medals as we did last year and we had three times as many all-around medalists (and last year since we hosted State, we tried to balance the age divisions in our favor!) Wildcard gymnasts won 33 medals, had six all-around medalists, and, for the first time ever, had a girls’ team place at state (just 0.5 out of fourth place)! Way to go, girls!
The following gymnasts will be added to the success wall (provided we can find room!):
Sofia B. — 9.175 on vault (6th), 8th-place bars, 4th-place beam, 7th-place All-Around
Hattie B. — 8th place beam
Ava C. — 10th-place vault
Bradyn F. — 6th-place bars, 9.050 on floor (3rd), 7th-place All-Around
Delaney H. — 9.175 on vault (4th), 8th-place bars, 9.225 on beam (3rd), 9.175 on floor (5th), 3rd-place All-Around
Lilly Ja. — 9.050 on vault (8th), 9.125 on floor (6th)
Aaliyah K. — 6th-place vault, 10th-place bars
Elie L. — 9.050 on vault (4th)
Miley L. — 8th-place bars
Jordan M. — 3rd-place bars
Camille P. — 9.175 on vault (8th)
Eden R. — 5th-place vault, 9th-place beam, 9.000 on floor (5th), 10th-place All-Around

Ava G. — 6th-place vault
Bella G. — 7th-place vault, 10th-place floor, 10th-place All-Around

Congratulations to all of our gymnasts for their success at state and this season! We are extremely proud of everyone and how hard they worked leading up to State. Let’s continue to practice hard and be even better next season!!

BUTTER BRAIDS TO BE DELIVERED — Butter Braids will be available for pick up starting Wednesday, April 1 (no kidding!) at 5 p.m. Hopefully, they will be available a little sooner so when you drop off your child, you can pick them up at that time. The Butter Braids arrive frozen and will stay frozen for several hours, but we do not have the ability to store the Butter Braids to keep them frozen for extended periods of time. Please pick them up on Wednesday.
If you haven’t placed your order, please do so today so we can get them delivered by Wednesday.
