silver

we had our WGSCA championships yesterday. my goodness the start of it was not going so well. before we left we left the snacks and a rifle at school. then at San Juan Hills HS, sara had lost the keys and our CD and CD players weren't working. the worst part was, we had forgot half of the purple flag back at school which means half of the people couldn't perform the first half of the show. Luckly, there was a school that had similar colour and patterned flags so we borrowed theirs; from scrippt high school. however, the flags were weighted better than ours and was 6 feet tall, ours were shorter. :l during the show, we dropped way too much and it was almost worse than our performance at san diego. i felt so ashamed during the show...i had dropped three times, and i never drop during competitions. i had failed my solo feature and triplet feature. and now obviously i had lost so much general effect points,later when we were folding the floor off the gym floor, we went over by 19 seconds....

during the awards ceremony, we had our roses, and wore our tiaras, glowsticks, and leis necklaces, and held everyone's hands while walking out. we just prayed for something above 15th place, like just alittle. and then as they were announcing the green division, from the bottom to the top, i asked jenny if it was our division and she said no, so i turned more impatient as they finished up the green divisoin when all of a sudden, WITH THE SCORE OF 82.20 a SCORE OF 82.20....NORTHWOOD!! our team kinda just stood stoned there, like out of it, because we thought 1) it wasn't our division 2) ya right we did so bad how could we possibly placed 2nd 3) OHMYGOODNESS REALLY?

we walked out and some freshman in the team were pretty shocked, and some looked like crying ahahaha we were happy. we recieved second place, a silver medal each, and a letter for our letterman jacket, and a picture as a team(: i was proud but disappointed in a way.

we later found out that the team that placed first was the team that lended their flags to us, so in a way it was good karma and they deserved it, as in like if they hadn't given us their flags, we wouldn't be able to have made such a good show and placed second. the only disapointing was that we lost by .1 our score= 82.20 their score = 82.30 wow right? just because we went 19 seconds over when we folded our floor and someone stepped out of bounds during the show. STUPID penalties D:< hahaa but i guess its all good at the end because we had put everything into it, we had worked toegether, and best thing was the judges told us that we technically won they had wanted us to win and they were mad that we didn't..it was our penalty that made us loose....so (: i guess you can say, we had invisible gold medals (: :: Scores from RA Championships at San Juan Hills HS
