Hey GymCat Fans :]


I hope everyone had a great super bowl weekend and got a chance to come out to our Pink Meet on Friday!  We had a great meet and continued our progress into a promising season.  The first few meets showed a few weaknesses and these last two have really shown how much potential this team has. 


We took on the Illinois-Chicago Flames in our breast cancer awareness "pink" meet.  Dressed for the occasion in our pink leotards, we were ready to take on the week's challenge.  As a team we had made some serious improvements and built up some confidence after the meet against Boise State and continued our improvements in practice.  I think we all had the mentality of going in there and showing everyone it was no fluke and that 195's could be a regular score to expect for our team.  We had a few rough spots but came out with the win and a team high score for the season! 


The most notable performance was Aubree Cristello's career high floor routine, a 9.9.  We were all ecstatic and I cannot even begin to tell you how amazing her floor set was!  For those of you who missed it, be sure to come out to our next home meet Feb. 18th against Stanford. 


As for this Saturday we will be in North Carolina, leaving this beautiful Arizona weather and taking on the Wolfpack gymnastics team.  It should be a good meet for us and our hope is to continue improving and paying attention to all those little details that can really boost the team score.  Practice is going well thus far and I expect nothing but great results as the season continues.


That's all for now!
