That Competitive Edge

As the season came to a close for our Cowboys football teams, competition season started up for my cheerleaders. We started off here in Tucson for the Southern Arizona Cheer Championships. The girls did really, really well and we placed second in all southern AZ.

Summer and Emma

The routine from the coach's box. Summer is the left base in the right rear stunt group.

2nd place!!!

2 weeks later we headed to San Diego, CA for the Desert Pacific Regional Cheer Championships. We put that 2 weeks to good use, increasing out difficulty and picking apart the routine and cleaning up all the little mistakes.

Road Trip!

The view from our hotel was pretty awesome

A soak in the Jacuzzi was exactly what the doctor ordered after a 7 hour bus ride!

 Saturday was our fun day at Sea World. I don't have any pics from it, but Paige, who is terrified of roller coasters, faced up to her fear and rode the Manta. I was so proud of her for not freaking out!

Sunday it was time to get serious! Here is a cell phone video of our routine. Sorry that it's such poor quality. I should be getting a better one in the mail shortly, so I will post it when it comes in.

We were the last team to perform during the morning session, so we didn't have to wait long for the awards ceremony.

I could not be prouder of this girl!
