Today was Alisa's state gymnastics meet...the meet she has been working towards for a year now. It was in Little Rock at the UALR campus. She worked so hard all year long, but when it comes to meets, gymnastics is 2% talent and 98% luck. She was not so lucky today.
She started off beautifully on bars. She scored an 8.0 and placed 2nd in the state for her age and level. Her second rotation was beam. It's her weakest and least favorite event, but she stayed on the 4 inch piece of wood during the routine and placed 3rd in the state for her age and level.

She had to pull herself together and still compete vault. She did well on it, but she was still rattled so she didn't place as high as she normally does.

Overall, she walked away with the title of #3 gymnast for her age and level in the state of Arkansas.
