Congratulations to Cali Otero on her state runner-up finish this weekend going 4-1 with 3 pins.  Alina ended up with a tough draw with the stater runner-up first and losing a close 5-1 match to a top 8 girl.  It was a long season and I'm so proud of the work these girls put in this year.  Time for a much needed break.  

This week our concentration will be on getting Bri prepped for her run at a state title on Sunday.  With no practices to compete with when we're at home we'll go early on Thurs/Fri.
Once I get my head above water I'll schedule an end of the season gathering for all of us to celebrate these great kids!
