This weekend was Savanna's first cheer competition of the year. She and I went up the the Civic Center in Augusta for the Maine State Cheer Challenge. Noble, and her team in particular, did so well last season there was some anticipation and expectation... we had talked about not winning, and honestly I think she was prepared to not come home with a first:
But, it was a clean sweep! Noble won all 5 divisions we competed in! Savanna's team, the Shining Stars continue their undefeated streak! Shining also won high score in their division, and the High School team won overall Grand Champions for the day! It was fun to see their new routine (and uniforms!) and getting back into competition schedule is a thrill for Sav. There was a lot of good sportsmanship and great athleticism in the Civic Center that day, it really isn't the "popular" girl sport you might envision. I'm so glad Savanna found her niche- now we just need to work on her tumbling! Auntie Anna has been helping getting her to gymnastics classes, and she just started at a new gym trying to get her back handspring/walkover. It won't be long now! It's all very exciting! You can guess where we will be spending the next 6 or 7 weekends right?! GO NOBLE!!
