This has been quite a season with DD doing both gym & track! I already posted about her earning 2 state championship titles this past weekend-floor & vault & 3rd AA. Well, yesterday was track championships(10 school districts competing). DD took 2nd in the 100m dash, her relay team took 3rd place & she earned 5th place in long jump with a personal record of 14.5ft. Pretty impressive with her little gymnast legs! Her gym coach didn't make this easy for her. DD promised him she wouldn't let track interfere with her gymnastics, and she didn't. Gymnastics is her 1st love, but she wanted to feel more a part of her school community. So she successfully "dabbled" in track & with her main focus on gymnastics. She pulled it off & did well in both!!! She is so proud of her wins in both sports! But she is most hurt that gym coach still has not congratulated her on her state titles. Her track coaches all gave her high fives when they heard about her gym wins & she missed some track practices & meets to go to gym practice(she always chose gym over track & the track coaches were always supportive of her). I believe that the supportive attitude of the track coaches HELPED DD with gymnastics. They gave her the emotional support that she craves from her gym coach. She proved to herself & to all of her coaches that she could do both & do them both well. I never doubted her...as I've said before...she always amazes me! What a week it has been:cloud9:.
