Hey Gymcat Fans!
This past weekend we headed all the way to the east coast to take on North Carolina State and William and Mary. This weekend was another ‘Pink’ meet, hosted by NC State. It’s hard to believe, but this meet marked the halfway point of our season, it’s going by quickly!
The team and the coaches were excited for this meet; every week leading up to this weekend the team has made huge improvements and we were hoping to continue that trend for this meet. Well, we certainly did! We had one of our most consistent performances up to date, with only one missed routine. More importantly though, the team showed a lot of fight, and a lot of heart. We never got down through the entire meet, and we never let little mistakes affect the rest of the routines. It was really exciting to see so much desire and fight because at the beginning of the year we seemed to struggle with that at times. All of the effort paid off as we beat both NC State and William and Mary, and more importantly earned a new season high score!
This Friday we are at home once again taking on Stanford. The team will be working hard in the gym, focusing on the little details in hopes of performing even better than last weekend! We only have two more home meets so be sure to come out to Mckale on Friday and support the team!
