Santa Cruz Sports Central boys and girls competitive teams performed beautifully last weekend in not-so-sunny Southern California. They competed in the 2012 San Diego Classic, hosted by Poway Gymnastics at the San Diego Town and Country Hotel and Conference Center.
The meet in San Diego marks both the the end of last year’s season (girls compulsory) the beginning of this year’s season (boys compulsory and optional and girls optional). For a complete list of San Diego Classic meet results, visit MeetScoresOnline.
Congratulations for the girls, most of whom improved their all around scores, showing that their gymnastics has improved tremendously since their last meet.
As for the Julie (our resident level 9 – optional) and the boys, it was a fantastic beginning of the year! New levels, new routines, tough competition. Julie showed her true colors, competing all around after a week of fighting the stomach flu. She had a number of new skills in her routines and a brand-spanking new floor routine. It was awesome! Congratulations, Julie!
In his first meet as an all around Level 5, Lukas did a great job in all his routines. He scored a 53.4 AA in the tough 9-year-old division.
Trevor, now a “seasoned veteran” level 5 (second year) improved last year’s all around score by a hand-full of points and earned himself a 5th Place All Around medal (and a couple others in individual events too). Way to bring home the hardware, bud!
Will and Zac both competed for the first time as optional gymnasts. This is a HUGE step in their careers and they are stepping up their games and facing the challenge with cool heads hard work. And it is paying off. Their gymnastics in San Diego was clean and elegant. Not only have they improved their own skills tremendously since last year, they also showed that Santa Cruz Sports Central is bringing tough competition to regional and national arena.
Cincinnati or bust!
