First, let me thank all the amazing moms, dads, grandparents, aunts and uncles for your amazing support and for making this long trip.
Day 1: 4th of July, we lit the roof on fire. Breyona was the defending National Champion and she kept her title. She was nothing but AMAZING!
Alaina, lost her title but won a silver and two bronze medals...this little girl "Rocked it."
Day two: 5th July. This was the first year that Teress, Treshaun and Camauri competed in the "Black Belt" division. They didn't medal but they are in the "Top Ten" Nation wide. Camauri is 5th place and Treshaun is 6th place, in the Nation, in the "Long Weapons Division." I told them from the beginning that the black belt division was a different size of monster...now they understand. This is the "First time ever" that all three walked away without a medal. We lost the battle but we will win the war! We are Wolf Pack, we can take it!
There were about 1,000 competitors... only the very best in the entire USA and from around the world were present.
Wolf Pack, Baby...Wolf Pack. Nothing but The Wolf.
