We are proud and happy to announce that Team ABC athlete Megan Mascarenas flashed her final to complete her four-comp winning streak and make her the uncontested SBS 7 Champion. This means that in the last 4 Spot events Megan has performed at the highest level of any female competitor. Nice job Megan!
Garrett Gregor won his first SBS Series Comp by giving a sound flash attempt on the problem that gave him control of a highpoint that was not surpassed by any subsequent competitor. Garrett has made finals several times this season but this was his first win. To read more check out Gladiator Finals Open Final Results! « The Spot Route Setting Blog.
In total Team ABC Boulder had 4 girls and 1 coach in the 12-person open final at The Gladiator Finals at The Spot on Saturday. The Gladiator Finals was the last in the four-comp SBS 7 series that also included The Gun Show, Psychedelia, and the Highline/Highball competition. The other girls who made finals were Laurel Todd, Margo Hayes, and Isabelle Goodacre. All three girls had personal-best Spot redpoint comps by completing 5 O problems including problem O7 during the redpoint round. Laurel and Margo won their categories and Isabelle took 2nd to Margo by 2 falls. In the final the girls climbed in the first 3 positions and ended up placing 4th (Laurel) 5th (Isabelle) and 6th (Margo). Nice job girls!
