She had her state meet and didn't do well for various reasons, mainly because of her vault...(and her maturity level) which has been a problem all season. Her routines are very difficult for level 8 so next year she should be able to tack on alot of bonus. She did qualify for regionals and we are trying to keep things low key. Too much pressure this season! She of course loves new skills which she has been working on all week, and scaring her mother!
Yes, she will compete level 9, 3 of her routines were level 9 this season,(she will be doing the same vault) she has a year to make it better! Now she is looking forward to getting credit for difficulty.
