 “Believe with all of your heart that you will do what you were made to do.” - Orison Swett Marden

Hey Gymcat fans!

Our classes are finally over, and it’s time for finals. At this point, season is right around the corner. The team is working harder than ever, and its showing!

This past week we had our first official intrasquad. We had two judges come in to judge our routines, like a real meet. Usually we do two events at each intrasquad prior to season. This year though, we were ready on three events, so we decided to go ahead and throw a third one in. The team ended up doing vault, bars, and beam. We had so many girls for each event that the team was divided into two teams: the red team and the blue team. The sense of competition also made it a little more interesting.

In the end, everyone did great! There was a lot of cheering and very high energy in the gym. The intrasquad was both motivating and informative. We saw where we are strongest at this point, and it revealed the areas we need work to improve. We have our second intrasquad coming on scheduled for Dec. 17th. This time floor will be on the bill, along with repeats of vault and bars. Hope to see you there!

Go GymCats!
