Hey Terp Fans!

            Happy Halloween! Hope you all had a good day filled with lots of treats, creative costumes, and spooky pranks! I know the GymTerps did! During practice on Halloween, we played a game that assistant coach, Erinn, made up where if you did a trick, you got a treat! It really got us in the Halloween spirit and highlighted just how many good tricks the GymTerps have this year! After practice, we had our Halloween lift in the weight room where everyone on the team and the trainer dressed up in a costume. There were hippies, cheerleaders, skater boys, ghosts, mummies, and cats. It was a lot of fun to dress up and see everyone’s costumes. For pictures, follow @TerpGymnastics on Twitter!

            This week we will continue to work hard in and out of the gym to get ready for our first Intrasquad that is in two weeks. We are all so excited to get the season going. The team has been looking so strong in the gym as we are beginning to increase the number of routines and perfect the little things. We are working on not only doing these routines, but performing them and showing them off!

            We are also anxiously awaiting our team posters. We had a photo shoot a couple of weeks ago in our new Under Amour competition leotards, and we can’t wait to see how it turns out. They have our schedule on them, so everyone will know where and when our meets will be! Our schedule is also posted online, so mark your calendars for when you will come cheer on your GymTerps! I cannot wait to see what we are going to do this season!

Thanks for reading and Go Terps!
