Gymnastics #6 {State Fall 2015}

The culmination of all of Miss E's hard work comes down to this one meet; the state meet of the season. There were 96 girls in her session so they split the session into three divisions of 32. Miss E held her own and did a fantastic job. She ended up with a medal for the vault, tying in 10th place and getting a personal best score. She also ended this season with a personal best score on the bars.

** I apologize that the videos are so jumpy.**

So, what is next?? We have a break from competitions until the spring. She will still be in the gym 10 hours a week and will be working on improving her skills. I wished that I had a way to record all the conversations that go on with her. One of the coaches shared how she can take a situation and find the positive in it. She is a natural when it comes to encouraging others. My heart is full. As a mom, I'm looking forward to seeing what this next season will bring... after this long awaited break. 

Blessings,

Gymnastics #5 {Sectionals}

This girl...

qualified for State at the sectionals meet. She had her best meet of the season!!

Our gym ended up competing in Torrance, CA. Torrance is over 100 miles north of us. I will say it is in LA but people who knew the area will disagree with me. We made really good time getting up there; it took just under 2 hours. The trip home was a little bit longer.

Miss E was the only girl from our gym competing in her session. One of her teammates decided to make the meet extra special and gave Miss E a teddy bear with a sweet little note. This teammate was able to sit with us as we cheered Miss E on and then we brought her home. This momma's heart was filled to see the love these two have for each other.

Vault
Due to the placement of the vault and where we are seated, I didn't get video of her vault this time.
She got a 9.025, which made her extremely happy. This is the second time she scored a 9 on the vault.

Bars
This routine was not her highest scoring routine of the season, but it reflects a lot of hard work over the past few weeks. Her score improved over 5 tenths of a point from the last two meets.

Beam (PR)
Unfortunately the camera ran out of memory and I only got the beginning of her routine.
Of course this would be the time she received her highest score.

Floor (PR)
This is her best scoring floor routine of the season.

To advance to the state meet she need an All Around score of 32.000; she scored 34.275!!

The last meet of this season is State. The state meet is the culmination of all the hard work she has put in this season. She will be competing solo again with over 90 other girls in her session. Stay tuned for updates...

This was Miss E's third preliminary meet. This was a pretty good meet for her. Overall she finished right in the middle of the pack as far as scores go. She was pretty happy.
