Hey Terp Fans! 

      It's been another great week of practices for the GymTerps! The team looks stronger than ever and we are all excited to take on the first intrasquad this Friday. 

      The week started out with bar's team event on Monday. We were able to put up 10 routines and there are even more on the way! On Tuesday we had beam team. There were so many girls in the team event that we had to have 2 separate groups. Everyone stayed calm and confident during their routines; it's hard to believe it's only November! On Wednesday we had a nice light day and just came in the gym to stretch. Feeling well rested, Thursday the GymTerps came into practice ready to attack yet another team event. It was vault time. Every girl in line up hit a beautiful vault. Finally, Friday was floor team event. The energy was unreal! It felt like a real meet and got us all excited to compete at the first intersquad. It was a great way to end the week. 

     On Saturday night we decided to to go out for a team dinner to enjoy some time all together. We had a great time relaxing together. It was the perfect way to refuel for the upcoming week of practices. 

      This coming week is huge for the GymTerps. It is our final preparation for the first intersquad. We are ready to perfect everything and touch up on the little things this week. The depth on this team is unreal and I can't wait to see what season has in store for us! 

      Remember, our Red vs. Black meet is coming up soon: December 12th! Mark your calendars and get ready to come support your GymTerps!

Thanks for reading!

Until next time,
