hurricane meet LV4 girlsAnother early day in our gymnastics world. We had to be out of the house by 715AM to get to the meet on time.

The girls had a blast hanging out before the meet with their teammates and getting loose. We love this tight-nit group of girls, they make practice and meets fun!

Coach Natalie does such a great job with these girls, it’s amazing. She has taught them well and these four little girls are showing our area that our gym is a force to be reckoned with.

The girls once again rocked the floor and Madison redeemed herself from placing 22 AA (all-around) out of 40 girls at the Dave Brown Memorial meet to placing 14th AA, narrowly missing the podium by .10 of a point!!! Nonetheless, we were all so excited and proud of everyone!!!

***to qualify for State Championship a gymnast must score a minimum of a 33.0, so far so good, they just need to be on their game at the March sectional and they both will be on their way to State Championship Meet Mother’s Day weekend***
