One of the things I really like about our sport is that hard work pays off. If you put in the time and make intelligent decisions, you will reap the rewards. Success tends to come in the form of steady progress and it is so very nice to see. A huge congratulations is in order for one of my favorite West Coasters – Megan Traynham. The hard work she’s put in between NAJYRCs and now is quite apparent as she stepped up to the challenge of Intermediate this weekend at Twin Rivers. It isn’t easy to be a junior and step in to the ring at that level. Add in the fact that you’re going toe to toe with some of the best in the sport and it is an incredible amount of pressure. Hooray Megan!
