We had a great time at the USTA competition on March 8, 2015! It was so much fun having Marley and Mia compete in their first competition.
Our other competitors, Anna Claire, Caileigh, Emma, and Olivia all participated in a fairly new event called Parade March for the first time. They had so much fun and did a terrific job! It takes the basic strut (marching in a square) and adds twirling to it.
Caileigh had her first solo win!! She's now moving out of the novice category and up to beginner. Way to go!
Olivia passed her Level A movement technique and performed the first part of her freestyle routine for evaluation!! She just has to pass her Level A compulsories now in order to qualify for PreTrials in June. Wish her good luck at our clinic when she'll try to qualify!
I'm so proud of not only our twirlers' accomplishments at this last competition, but even more so in how hard they've been working, what great attitudes they had all day, and how encouraging they are to each other. We have the best team!
