Ok, It was not Big D best performance, but she is happy and I am happy too.

First went Bars, she did a great routine, her casts were above 45 and so was her clear hip circle, but not nearly close to a HS (she is working on that) at her gym they don't let the girls cast to HS while arching, because It is a deduction. I saw several girls casting to HS and get lower scores than Big D, because they were arching or couldn't make the connections or the baby giant, so I am happy with the way she has being coached for bars. And she finally stuck her landing in her layout flyaway, no steps. She got a 9.1 and 3rd Place.

Then came Beam, her best event so far this season, well she was nervous didn't fall, but wobble more than usual, her score was a 8.95 (first 8 of the season), she got 3rd place (1st place was 9.25), so I guess the judges were really tough on beam this time, because I didn't see many 9's.

Floor, was ok, she tripped on one leap, her tumbling was nice. Good routine, not her best, got a 9.05 and 6th place.

Vault was good for her, she has being slowly improving here, got a 9.0 and 8th place.

So she placed in all 4 events, they were given medals to the top 9 places.

Top 10 girls in each age group qualified for State, she got 36.1 and 4th Place. So she has 3 weeks to clean the level 6 routines for State and start working on her level 7 routines for January.

Best part of all was that all her team mates qualified to State too, and they got 3rd Place small team out of 19 teams. So is going to be a fun travel meet for us with ALL the girls going to State.:)
