Hey everyone! Haven finished her season this past weekend. She won states with a 37.875 and was very happy. Our gym lost our title however and finished second. Our girls had a serious case of beam falls. It was just plain weird. They were going down one after another.

Yesterday, Haven broke her foot jumping over the beam during conditioning. She is in the gymnasts-best-friend-boot for about a month or so. I am hoping it wont interfere too much with her TOPS preperations. It is amazing how she has lost some abilities thru the season while focusing on competing.

Overall, it was a wonderful season. Haves went undefeated this year. We hope EVERYONE rox their states and regionals and HOPEFULLY nationals meets. AND ENJOY SPRING BREAKS!!!!!

Congrats on her for winning states!! Wow! 2nd Place Team is amazing as well! They should be proud. Things happen and they obviously had a bad beam day. Maybe next year! :D

Sending her healing vibes for her foot. Luckily a lot of that TOPS stuff is upper body strength. I always think it is better to break a foot than a wrist, at least from a gymnastics standpoint.

Oh my! Sorry about that foot breaking! But whew! At least it happened after States! Although,, now, it sounds like it may set her back for her TOPS prep. Man! When do these kids EVER get a phase where they can just chill??!!

Anyhow, hope she can continue to condition well for TOPS, and that her foot heals quickly.

CONGRATS on the awesome States results! :)

I'm so sorry about her broken foot but am impressed with your daughter! Good for her! Naomi is working on doing the same thing. She is undefeated so far this year, has one more regular meet and then state. She is already working on tops again, too. Man, what a lot of work! I really hope your daughter's foot heals quickly. Let us know how she does with tops. I hope it turns out to be a great summer for her despite the rough start. ;)

Congratulations Haven! Way to go on the undefeated season. Hope that the boot comes off soon and doesn't drive her nuts too much, lol. Down time drives every gymnast crazy!
