We just got back from dd's 5th level 5 meet. She had a great meet. She started on Bars and looked great. I know nothing about what makes a good routine but it looked great to me. Her sis said she needed to tighten up on her jump to the high bar but even she gave her high praise. She got a 9.25. On beam she looked very poised and I was worried because both her sisters were beam timers and runners! I was just waiting for one of them to start laughing at her and her to lose her concentration. It not something I expected since it wasn't our gyms meet. They just came over and asked them since they were short handed. She did great and got a 9.25. Her only problem on beam was not holding her handstand dismount. She did great on floor and got a 9.2. Vault is always her weakest event and I was worried for her. She must be improving( I can't tell....vault mystifies me!) she got a 9.0! She ended up getting 1st on every event and the all around! If she can keep this up she should rock state in........2 more months! Man this is going to be a looong season!

Cher062....They started in January and State is not until the 3rd week in June. We are new to this state so I am not sure if this is usual or not. It makes for a short summer and not a lot of time to work new skills. We are on our 9th weekend of straight competitions. Between 2 gymnasts and one swimmer it has been a long 2 months.
