Almost........



State has come and gone. Yesterday was spent at the Yakima Sundome competing against 38 other teams. It has been a frustrating season with many difficulties, but the girls have been great!!!! After losing a girl the night before districts and not getting the scores we wanted, I went back to the drawing board. We changed all the formations and we added more, we added to the costumes, we put in more stunts and tricks and difficulty. We added more visuals and effects. We worked hard and built stamina!!!!! The girls performed AWESOME!!!!!! They did exactly what I hoped they do. They hit the numbers (with just a few mistakes) and they gave it ALL they could. They danced well, with lots of energy and personality. The crowd responded. BUT WE did not get the results we had hoped for. WE got 2nd in Drill. 2nd in Hip Hop (almost---minus a very large safety deduction). I honestly walked away from the whole experience being so PROUD of my girls. They couldn't have given ANY more. I couldn't have asked for any more. Sure we had hoped for 3 State Championships but the judges choose someone else....and we did all we could. It's best to aim for the stars and reach the moon, then aim for nothing and reach it.....
I love you Molahiettes!!!!

What an awesome team! You have such a great attitude! I agree, it is better to aim for the star and reach the moon, that to set your sights low.
