Hi Wildcat Fans,
The team traveled to Chicago this past weekend to compete against the University of Illinois-Chicago.??We had a huge fan section, which included family and friends of Sarah (her hometown crowd), Karin, Bree, Alexis, Miranda, Suzanne, and Erica.??They were really supportive and I think that the Arizona crowd was louder than the Chicago one.? The competition was our best yet this season!? We started out strong on bars, with everyone hitting their routines.? The momentum continued to vault and then to floor, with a slight hick-up on beam.?
After the meet, we got to spend an extra day in Chicago.??Many people ventured into the freezing cold weather (about -26 with wind chill) to go shopping on Michigan Ave., while others spent time with their families.??Bill, Beamer, Kristen, and I chose to go see the musical ˇ®Wickedˇ? which was absolutely amazing!!!? Not only was the musical great, but the theatre was beautiful.??
We are improving every week and are extremely excited and determined to compete against ASU.? It has been a long and ongoing rivalry and last season we were victorious against them three times.? Following ASU, we are home for two weeks in a row and our meet on Feb. 22 is our annual breast cancer awareness meet. We hope to see you there, wearing pink!
Until next time,
