saratoga springs meet

Mary had a meet in Saratoga Springs today.

We got there just in the nick of time...literally.  Geesh, I really need to time these things better.

It worked out though...Mary had a fantastic meet!

Both of her floor passes were as close to perfect as they have been all season.

She nailed both landings and her form was awesome.

BUT....she started her last flip of her first pass on that darn red line again!  ARGH!!!

she has to start her last of 7 flips with her feet in front of the red line, and land on the yellow

Amazingly, even with her last flip not counting on her first past...she placed 3rd out of 16!

On the podium!!!!

We went back and took a look at the scoring sheets and we saw that without that red line take off, she would have won on floor today!

Even better....she hit the qualifying score she needs for Nationals.  It doesn't count this meet, but at least she knows she can do it.

Double mini had some very tough competition.  She was competing against two age groups, and those girls were really, really good!

Mary's passes were awesome, but she had one bobble on her landing on her second pass.  That small wiggle put her in 6th place.

The top 6 girls were all within 2 points of each other! It was that close!

Mary placed 6th out of 13, but she was very happy with how well she did, and how good of a score she got. 

Mary blew it away today.

Way to fly Mary girl!
