Let’s Begin With a Poem
Rose are red
Violets are blue
It was a crazy weekend

Top Gun All Stars 2016 Showcase
Okay, not only did Top Gun bless us with their always amazing routines, but they recorded all of their performances and put them on YouTube. Thank you to whoever decided that was a good idea. You’re the best. Okay, so let’s talk about Top Gun Large Coed and OO5 because they look incredible. OO5 pulls some voodoo magic in their pyramid, and TGLC has such an eye-pleasing routine. The rest of Top Gun’s program looked great too with solid performances from Angels and Lady Jags. Check out their YouTube channel here.

Maryland Twisters 2016 Showcase
The reigning World CHAMPS, Maryland Twisters F5, showed UP and gave us a show. Maryland Twisters has always been a powerhouse, and these past few years have shown that they’re not going anywhere. Not only did F5 have an incredible routine, Reign, Cobalt, and Blackout showed they’ve got something to offer too.

World Cup Shooting Stars
World Cup Shooting Stars performed again last weekend and put on another production. They had an incredible showing at their showcase, which we wrote about here, and now they’ve performed another hitting routine. Something tells me these girls have been working on those stunts… a lot.
Cheer Athletics took several of their teams to compete this weekend before their first bid event next weekend. We saw solid performances from all of your faves including Cheetahs, Panthers, and Wildcats. We see some full paid bids in their near future.
