The girls all have 2-weeks to practice and prepare for the State Championships in Corvallis on December 5. A special thanks goes out to the girls (and the families) that either stayed from the early (8am) session, all through the last session, and the level 4 that made a special trip out to Beaverton just to watch! Your encouragement and support makes a difference! NGTC is a team that spans all levels; Emily and Janina and Kelsey…your actions are exactly what we look for!
