Anything crazy or funny happen during your meet? I accidentally saluted during the announcement when the announcer said “Legacy” it wasn’t Legacy Elite and I saluted with the teammate next to me.
How does Region 5 compare to the other Regions out on the competition Floor? What sets Region 5 apart? Region 5 develops the feel of a true team by the camps and talks.
