We had our competition yesterday and the scoring was SO different! Nate only got a 9.5 on pommel after getting 10-11+ for the last two seasons in the same level. We had the Olympic judge on pommel and the scores were very low....except for a couple of super stars who got 10-11+...Yikes! Last year was the first season ever for him to score in the 60s consistently (other than breaking 60 in his regional meet as a level 6) and they were high 60s at that! Now he was under 60. With that being said he DID get 1st on vault, get a top ten medal in each event and get 4th AA...(in his age group- 8th out of all of the age groups) but again this is now his 3rd year. He looked a bit "off" to me yesterday and wasn't as tight as he could've been. Ever since he was a level 6 and their team won state and regionals he has looked like he competes scared...He doesn't go for things like he used to...I dunno. We'll see how he does this season and in years to come.
