I meant to post this yesterday but I was having major computer problems and then a wicked headache knocked my o.u.t. I took some pain meds at 5:30PM and went to lay down to let them work and that was it for the night, I was out. This morning I thankfully awoke with the headache mostly gone and after a wonderful hour long deep tissue massage of my neck & shoulders I’m feeling much better. So after 163 of daily posting, my streak has ended. C’est la vie.
Saturday morning Maisie competed at her second meet of the season. This was their first away meet and it was held at Cobb Challengers. Maisie was very excited and awoke extra early, 6 am to be exact so she was up and rearing to go.
Teammates Summer, Maisie, Taylor, Avery & Alyssa
To qualify for State Meet a gymnast must earn two All-Around scores of 32 or higher. At the first meet of the season, Summer Fun Meet, Maisie earned a 35.3 and though at this meet Maisie had a few difficulties on beam, she made her score with a 34.625 so that pressure is relieved and she’s qualified for State!
This past week at practice, on both Thursday & Friday, Maisie took two really bad falls on the beam and that showed in her performance at the meet. She was trying so hard not to take another bad spill that she lost her confidence and twice she fell off the beam. I’m so proud of my girl though as she got right back on the beam both times and completed her routine.
Maisie said that she was disappointed with her beam performance but that she tried her best and wants to work on it so that next time she does better. Maisie medaled in only three events, vault, bars & floor and received one of her lowest scores ever (7.6) on her beam routine but even with that, she still came in third all-around and was only 0.425 off of first place. As always I’m so proud of my girl and beyond thrilled that she had fun at the meet and loved being there, competing and being with her teammates.
Okay so here we go with more pictures of Maisie with her arms in the air.
Big Congrats to Maisie and all the the North Metro Girls, as always you Rocked the House!!
