    And I don't believe in saying anything that is untrue.

    I do not in any way think our team would have gone past Brandon even if we hit both days. They are just that good and I have so much respect for them. CJA did great both days as well! Remember, it's not just about hitting, it's about difficulty, etc. To be 9th with our difficulty is the issue. We were 4th place on Sunday, traveling 5 spots when most of the teams that hit Saturday, hit Sunday.

    At UCA, to win, you have to hit both days. Period. And that is how it should be - for sure. I have absolutely no issue with losing, none at all- we did not hit a performance worth winning. I just want to be clear on that.

    I'm not doubting your veracity. I'm quite certain that's what all the parents and athletes were told. It wouldn't be the first time a coach claimed a scoring error.

    What I am doubting is that the head judge ever said that. If a head judge does find a scoring error, they are going to correct it, especially the first day of a two day comp. I can't comprehend a head judge saying there was an error and they would just look more closely the next day.

    Not one single judge that I have ever known would do that.

    I hear what you are saying and I hope that this is not the case. With going from 9th to 4th hitting a clean routine on Sunday, to me, shows that the judges gave us the correct values for the areas they killed us in on Saturday (not the drops, but jumps, execution, etc.). I'll never know of course and I have to trust that we were told valid information.

    But I do hear you!!

    This is kinda random, but after going to UCA and sitting in the milkhouse and seeing how small it actually is, I cannot imagine how they can have Worlds there every year! It felt really small and packed when I was there, and it was only UCA!

    I know it gets super packed in there for Worlds. I haven't been there (my oldest is on a Sr 5 restricted) but my friends have gone and last year they had to sneak in through the back because it was at maximum capacity and they weren't letting anyone else in! Haha I love it!!!!!!

    Why thank you! They are a great bunch of kids who just seemed to gel together and work very hard. They also have amazing coaches and were given great choreography. Good luck to you in the rest of your season and thanks again!

    I got so confused because I'm watching the live stream and why would it be on ESPN for free, if I'm paying. lol!
