ALL STARS Independence Cup  June 13, 2004

The Inependence Day Cup of 2004 saw some intense competition. At the start of the meet, both teams were warned by Brian: “This meet is going to come down to Balance Beam.”

With that in mind, Aurora and Andromeda set to work, Aurora on Vault, and Andromeda on the Floor. With higher tumbling and better dance, Andromeda pulled out to a quick lead. Aurora stayed tough, turning in solid performances on Vault and Floor.


Andromeda then moved to Beam, and Aurora to Bars. Aurora, with only one Level 5 bar routine from Ann Marie, remained calm, despite tough scores. They watched across the gym, as Andromeda struggled on the beam. With 5 gymnasts performing the more difficult routines, Andromeda had the potential for 5 very high scores. In the end, however, the cartwheels in the routines were too much obstacle to overcome, and Andromeda had to include several low scores in their total.

Aurora had only one fall on their entire team on the Beam, and as predicted, the meet did in fact revolve around the Balance Beam. Aurora countered a lesser level of difficulty with a high level of precision, and were victorious for the first time in the season.

Congratulations to both teams on a great season. Keep working so that next year, we take the All Stars teams to even higher levels!
