The trend of our team score inching up each meet is encouraging and definitely something we intend on continuing as our season progresses! The girls have all been working to add more difficulty into their routines in an effort to increase our scores even more. We have a solid core of returning gymnasts that will be complimented by the addition of some new talent. The Pirate gymnasts are right on track for another successful season!
