Gym South's Level 6 Team earned 4th place for Team at the Flip Fest Invitational.
D took the plunge and began to train at Level 6 after his last meet. It was a shock to his medal gathering mindset to approach the medal ceremony with scores that reflected a gymnast who had been training at Level 6 for 1 1/2 months.
Floor 12.1 (22nd)
Rings 12.6 (17th)
Parallel Bars 11.7 (18th)
Pommel Horse 10.5 (24th)
Vault 13.8 (16th)
High Bar 13.1 (13th)
All Around 73.8 (20th out of 28 competitors - age 10 category)
The competition here is a bit tougher than a GA meet and more in line with what he'll face at a regional meet. After the initial sadness, he headed off to the gym this week with determination to "train harder."
