2014 Level Nine Regional Championships! Season Best All Around Score!

Rylie 9th overall! Considering her first year level nine starting values were lower,  this is an amazing accomplishment! Rylie had her best ever all around score at this meet at 36.425. The top six plus two alternates (top 8) were placed on the Region Seven National Team. Region Seven competitors were made up of the top six all around scorers from 6 states, NJ, MD, DL, PA, WV, VA  Rylie will now work on learning some higher difficulty level skills for her second year level nine competition season. She is really excited.   Rylie and her friends, Megan and Ashton (her fellow WV regional teammates) found some time to have some beach fun on this trip held in Hampton, Virginia.  Part of the fun of competing is the friends Rylie is making and the places she gets to see.  Great season ending !

Kalahari Meet in Sandusky OH 2014 Gold Medal in Floor!

Rylie rocked the floor event at the Kalahari Meet in Sandusky OH on March 7, 2014.  She not only received first place in her age group, but out of 56 level nine competitors she also placed first.  She scored an all around of 36.2 also scoring a season high on bars at 8.9.  Coach Gary was pleased with her this meet considering she was a bit under the weather and running a slight fever.  Like the true competitor she is, she made it though.  Below are her season high floor with much from the Hunger Games and her Bars event.
