Hey CB family, My DD has sectionals tomorrow(1st session,ugh!). Those of you that have followed my(very loooong:eek:) post this season(thank you all by the way!), know DD has struggled with many mental blocks & fear issues. She's going into sectionals feeling pretty confident in her skills:). I'm soooo proud of her for working through her issues! She has actually had the most improvement in her gym skills, since she joined the school track team!!! I was afraid doing both would be too much for her...but she is thriving:D! DD's goals are just to qualify for states & do the best she can & have fun. So if there are any "do the best you can fairies" out there??? Can you send them our way please?;)

I am so glad to hear that Track is a positive addition to her regime and actually helps out her gym! Cross-training can help in many ways!!!!!!!

Sending you the "Giant" fairy, just because I love typing it! You can also have the sleep weel and be rested fairy. I'll be thinking of you tomorrow, hope all goes well, she certainly deserves to have a great meet. Funny how the new sport is improving the old sport. Experts always say that cross-training is beneficial.

OHhhhhh!!!! Good luck to your dd, gjm!!! I have been waiting for your posts to tell us when her last couple of meets were coming. So glad you kept us informed.

She is going to do GREAT! We know she has had great success at the state level before, and w/ her confidence level being as high as it is right now, I think she is going to rock sectionals and definitely qualify for states! I just hope that coach of hers doesn't mess w/ her head too much in the process. ;)

Sounds like Track was the BEST thing that happened to her. Just to get her 'head' somewhere else, and have the success there, helps a lot, I am sure. So glad she is in a good spot right now. :D

Keep us posted! HUUUGGSSS!

That is soooooo great to hear. She's a tough one for sure. I'm really happy she's getting her confidence back, and just in time. Maybe she just thought you needed a few grey hairs:D Looks like she's peaking at the perfect time. Good luck at states, I just know she's going to be happy and do her best.

Good luck to your dd! Keep us posted! :)
DD finished up well. She placed 2nd on bars, 1st on beam, tied for 3rd (had the higher AA) on floor, and finished 3rd AA. She was very happy and I'm proud. Two years at the same level can be tough when it's compulsory. She was really hoping for top 3 (she really wanted a trophy), and is happy to be the state beam champion - the event she struggled most with when first starting. Back to stength and conditioning at today practice . . .

Congrats to your DD! How exciting to be a State Champ, especially on an event that has been tough for her. Great news! Hope you can share some vids :D!

I didn't tape the state meet, didn't want to make her nervous. I have other meets taped, and one of these days I'll figure out what to do with it besides watch it on the camcorder!

Thanks for all of your support of my DD CB family!!!DD is very proud of her beam performance! But as usual...not many(or any) "pats on the" back from her HC. His only response was... that her floor score should have been higher(9.25 isn't good enough:rolleyes:). Now her gym coaches are telling her she needs to quit track before states!!!! Her HC & floor coach think track is "wearing her out & making her tumbling less powerful". Her floor routine was very nice as usual. I think it was just a difference in judging. She's scored anywhere from 9.2-9.6 with her rountine this season & each time has looked pretty much the same. I just wonder why do her coaches always have to look at the negative side of things!!! No wonder the poor thing is always stressed out!!! She just got her best beam score EVER!!! If doing track is "negatively effecting her performance" then how do they explain her beam?!? Now she doesn't know what to do. She says they were both "pressuring her last night, to quit track". Why can't they just let her be happy??? Yes this is a crazy schedule she's keeping up. But she's doing it. She's happy, healthy, eating well. She hasn't missed any gym practices. She WAS in the most confident I'd seen her all year. Now she seemed so confused when I picked her up from gym last night. She's actually considering quitting track?!? I think they are messing with her head way too much!!!:(
