it's at the end of march.....could be hard to make though. It's 4.5 hours away or so and I have wsma's for orchestra the sane day! Yikes. Usually wsma is on the smae day as sectionals, so it's close. My parents and I are already nervous; I have group perfromance, a quartet, a solo, and possibly a duet. one busy day!
I thought I'd let everyone know how my meet yesterday went. I made my backwalkover on beam, but skipped the front handstand in my dismount. I ende up with an 8.5 anyway and finished second. Vault is one my worst events. I got a 7.7. On floor, my I did my back tuck by myself( first time w/ a full routine). It was REALLY slow, but I got around and scored a 7.4 and fourth place. On bars, i screwed up my highbar kip and never technically comppleted the element b/c I was too focused on connetions, but I ended up winning the event with a 7.75. I took second all-around with a 31.35, qualifying me for state and nationals. Pretty good for my first meet.
Those results are in another forum....I had another meet two weeks ago-it didn't go well at all. I had one yesterday-I got my highest floor score of the season-8.0, and ended up winning bars w/ a 7.45.
Wow.. how many girls were competing in your age group?? Not trying to make your scores sound bad or anything, but my niece had mid-high 8s in all her events at her last meet and finished with a 33.45 and only placed 6 in the AA (out of 15)!? She was competing in PREP Op 1 with the 10-11 year olds. Most of the girls who won had scores in the mid 9s, and had competed in Level 4 last year. Even the one girl on Ash's team who was training at L5 struggled with mid 8s and 1 9 (9.25 on vault gave her 6th). It was a rough meet for all the girls from Ash's gym. But they had only had less than a month to practice the routines.
Firt, I compete level six, with a varying number of girls in my age group. Secondly, none of them have very strong bars routines. So yeah, it seems low, but I actually score the highest on my team and sometimes win bars by over a point, with low to mid sevens.
