In July of 2019 Lily competed in her final HOPES Championship meet. This meet was held at the Yum! Center in Louisville, Kentucky. This was our first trip to Louisville and it was HOT! It was a bittersweet meet knowing that this would be her last time doing a HOPES competition (she would age out of HOPES in 2020) and would also be the last time she would perform her floor routine (she would be getting a new floor routine for the 2020 season). She started out on vault where she scored a 13.30. Up next was bars, where she scored a 12.10. After bars was beam, she had a solid beam routine and scored a 12.80. Her last event was floor, the last time I would ever get to see her perform this fun, sassy floor routine that was literally made just for her. She killed it, scoring a 13.00 and taking home the gold medal on floor! She ended with an all around score of 51.200, enough for a second place finish and silver medal! What a way to close out her HOPES season. Up next….trying to qualify as a junior elite gymnast in 2020!!!!
