Today Bridget was in her second tumbling competition. The first one was in November and she placed ninth. The coach tells them to do this for fun, that is is hard to place, which is 1st to 7th, and to gain some experience the first few times. Bridget heard those words, but I could see it in her eyes today that she intended to do better and place. She was the first one up in her group and it was the best she has ever performed that routine! She was put in fifth place and she was thrilled! She got a big green ribbon for her efforts and gets to compete in the next level, the championship meet in two weeks. This competition is part of MATS (Mid America Tumbling Society) and included 17 teams from Kansas and Missouri.
