“These eight had an absolutely fantastic meet, a record high score, and are 4th in State!,” the team tweeted yesterday. “They came in with confidence and pulled together to have their best bars/beam this season (and great floor/vault). What an accomplishment to peak at the right time and perform when it counts. So proud!”
Congratulations to the team!
