Princess Girl = Rock Star

I am a super proud parent today. Princess Girl’s cheer team won first place in her age/level at the Battle for the Behemoth Trophy competition (her gym’s home competition).

AND

Her team won GRAND CHAMPION! (Highest score of the whole competition.)

Grand champion is a big deal. Especially for Princess Girl’s team. The way cheer competitions are scored your level determines the maximum points you can be awarded for each stunt, move, tumbling pass. The higher your level, the more points available. It is based on difficulty, kinda like gymnastics and ice skating. What this means is a team from the highest level usually wins Grand Champ.

BUT

At this competition there were three teams at a higher level (more points available) and three teams at her level. Obviously, they got first at their level, but Grand Champion means they got higher scores than the three teams that have higher possible points!

GO IEC SENIOR L3!!!!!

And we are off to Nationals in three short days!
