Last weekend, members of our JO Optional team (levels 6, 7, and 8), traveled to Connecticut to compete in the Team Challenge, hosted by Gymnastics Revolution. This was the first time Spectrum has attended this meet, and our gymnasts performed beautifully and had a great time doing it. The competition was hosted at Western Connecticut State University and featured teams from all over Region 6. Our gymnasts had the opportunity to compete in a state they've never competed in, against teams they would never see aside from a Regional Championship. Spectrum definitely held their own in a sea of top teams from all over the region, and we had several top scores and finishes! Spectrum also got a lot of compliments on their floor routines (which makes me a proud coach/choreographer and seriously, I don't know how I'm going to top some of these current floor routines when it comes time for new ones!) Needless to say, I don't think Connecticut has seen the last of Spectrum; we will definitely be back next year!
