Ok, so my kid's scores would make most of your kids CRY, but it's all relative right?! All I know is that Puma Jr just had her best meet of the season. She had her best AA, best bars, and best vault which was also her best single event score all year. She had all "clean" routines (hit all skills, no falls) again and FINALLY qualified for states! I know it's not all that hard in NY, but she has really been struggling through this transition so I am super proud of her. Her hard work is really starting to pay off. She still has a long way to go, but at least the stress of qualifying is over. It came down to the wire too...she ended on vault and needed higher than her best score all season to qualify. Her first vault was AWFUL. She actually fell on her butt, which she has never done. (Hmmm..I'm just realizing that may count against my previous "clean" comment...but that's why you get two, right?!)But her second vault was actually 0.45 higher than she needed! Woo hoo! This is so huge for her confidence. Hopefully it can propel her to really dig in and make the corrections she needs to work toward getting scores like her teammates. You know what I always say though...small victories!!! THANK YOU for all the good thoughts/wishes/mojo...
