All the members worked very hard to create a nice friendly atmosphere for all the participants. There were 18 competitors in the junior division and 15 in the senior. Both divisions competed in optional Rope Hoop, Clubs, Ribbon and special Ball routines. A surprise in the junior division was this years newcomer, Salina Woolery of the LA Lights. She took 0.1 lead over Lisa Arnson (LA Lights) . Stacy Oversier, also LA Lights finished third, only 0.45 behind the winner. Kristina Kincaid (LA Lights) placed fourth and Shari Lester (Flips, Reno, Nev), was fifth. All 5 girls displaced ¡ good technica l skills and qualified for the Nationals. First place in the senior division went to Valerie Zimmering of LA Lights. At the age of 15 Valerie is already an experienced competitor. She performed her routines with confidence and without major errors. Sandra Shannon, LA Lights finished second all round and took first place in rope and clubs . The bronze medal for third place belongs to Nancy Neufeld, LA Lights. Fifteen year old Nancy has been improving her skills with every meet.
