On Saturday, May 3, Emma and Olivia attend the NBTA Colorado State competition in Berthoud. They both competed in basic strut and solo. The rules and music are slightly different for NBTA than our usual USTA competitions and they did a great job at keeping it all straight!
Then on Sunday, May 4, we had a lot of fun competing at the USTA Colorado State competition in Denver with Anna Claire, Caileigh, Emma, Lorelei, and Olivia! It was a long (and hot!) day, but I was so proud of how these girls all kept striving to do their best in their events all day long.
This was the first competition for both Caileigh and Lorelei and they did such a great job! I was so proud of how they went out on the floor with confidence and did their very best.
I want to give a big congratulations to Anna Claire, Emma, and Olivia! Anna Claire placed 1st in the Colorado State Beg Solo (ages 0-8). She looked so poised and had a no-drop routine! Olivia placed 3rd in the Colorado State Beg Solo (ages 9-12). Olivia did one of her best routines yet in this big division with 11 girls competing! Emma placed 1st in the Open Beg Basic Strut (ages 11-12). She demonstrated yet again at what a great job she does when strutting and with a large group of 9 girls in her division!
After the competition we enjoyed a celebration with some frozen yogurt. It was definitely time to kick back, relax, and cool off!
Below I've posted all of our twirlers' top 3 results for their events. On Sunday, our twirlers got to experience some really large groups for their events! It's nice to see so many twirlers competing here in Colorado. I also included Caileigh and Lorelei's placements in basic strut since it was their first competition.
