Emma Garrett's Redhawk Chalk Talk for Oct. 10-16
Oct. 18, 2010
The team had a great practice on Monday. Mats started getting put in on vault and the whole team pushed through and did some great vaults!
Beam and bars also went very well! This was a great way to start off our hard week! On bars, combinations continued to be worked on, and parts began to not get counted if we didn’t hit all our handstands. This wasn’t easy, but everyone worked through it, stayed positive, and got stronger!
On beam we worked on consistency without taking much time between turns.
Senior Christina Sundgren started on her floor choreography this week, and it looks great! It’s a routine unlike any she’s ever done and is definitely going to be a crowd pleaser!
The team ended our short week with a “Checkpoint” on Thursday morning before we left for Fall Break. A Checkpoint is a practice where we aren’t told what the assignments are. It is used for us to see where we are individually, where we are as a team and for the coaches to see what areas still need to be focused on.
As a team, we did great! We’re heading in the right direction and the coaches were very happy with what they saw!
It was a great note to end on before heading home!
GET TO KNOW A REDHAWK
Her favorite event is vault because she feels it’s her strongest; I think the whole team would agree with this statement! She flies so high and makes a vault look so easy!
When asked what her most embarrassing moment was she said, “Probably when I split my pants in elementary school.”
She’s a Pre-physical Therapy major and hopes to contribute this season as an all-arounder.
Megan is a great addition to our team, works very hard in the gym, and always has a smile on her face!
