North Metro Elite
Eclipse – Senior 2: Leading up to Nationals, Eclipse kicked it into high gear during practice! Coming off of their National Championship win at The American Legacy in February, the ladies of Eclipse were determined to give the judges the best two performances of the season in Florida. On day one, warm up was a little rocky, as nerves tried to get the best of the girls. But they pulled together, and encouraged each other all the way to the performance floor. They opened their day one routine with a strong elite sequence, beautifully times tumbling sequences and a strong dance. A small issue in the pyramid kept Eclipse from a zero deduction routine on day one, but this also lit a fire that drove the day two performance. On day two, they took warm up in stride, and brought out the best in one another. When these thirteen amazing athletes took the mat, they gave the performance of a lifetime. The elite sequence was clean and sharp. The tumbling was sharp and tight. The pyramid was flawless, and the dance left the crowd wanting more. Eclipse gave the judges a performance to remember. These ladies took home 6th in the Nation in the Small Senior Division. They worked together as a team, and ended their season with a performance that they can be nothing but proud of.
Falcons – Junior 2: on day one the Falcons brought great energy to the Sports Center arena. Nailing all of their stunts and sticking all of their tumbling they hit a zero deduction routine, putting them in a strong place going into day two. On the second day at the arena they brought the confidence and attitude we had been looking for all season. The Falcons took home 6th place at UCA nationals hitting two strong routines and having their best performance of the season.
Eagles – Senior Coed 3: on the first day at the arena the Eagles soared high with great timed full baskets, a strong jump sequence and high energy dance. After day one the Eagles were sitting in 11th place in a huge division. Day two the Eagles left everything out on the floor, nailing their stunt sequences and sticking all tumbling bringing their best performance to the mat.
