Hey Gymcat Fans!
This week we are starting something new. At the beginning of the week, one team member will pick a motivational quote that will be posted by the beam area, and will be our team ‘motto’ for that week! This week’s quote is:
“There may be people that have more talent than you, but there’s no excuse for anyone to work harder than you do”
Our team most certainly has the talent it will take to make nationals, but if we are going to make it then we will have to rely to hard work to get us there, not just talent.
On that note, if practices thus far are any indication of where the team will be at the end of the season, then you can expect some great things from the team! We had our first taste of competition on Friday, putting up seven routines in a bar intersquad. It was pretty impressive to see that many people swinging through full sets this early in the season. We still have some work to do, but this is an excellent place to be in October. The team is not just excelling on bars though; we are expecting intersquads on the other three events in the coming weeks as well!
Hope everyone is getting as excited for season as we are! Check back next week for our new quote, and more updates from the Gymcats!
