I am very frustrated. We just returned from our level 4 state meet in Virginia, and it was rather disappointing. Aside from the usual things at a meet that everyone claims, favoritism and what not, we had several gyms that brought 2nd and 3rd year competing gymnasts. These girls took the awards for the last two years, and now they are getting 38 all around scores. Shouldn't there be a cap on allowing gymnasts that score consistent high 36's, 37's and 38's from competing in the same level again? It is supposed to be a beginning level right? Not a career. I wish the coaches would show more concern for the good of their girls, instead of worrying about what their team award will be. I know that I do not know all of the situations. But, I also know that to get 15th place at this meet you had to score 9.25 or better on most events. How fair is that to these little ones. I just don't understand this logic.
