Consider the fact that two seasons ago, Gracie ended her season with a dismal sixth place finish at Midwestern sectionals. With in a few months, she was dominating summer comps and having a breakout junior season. Competing in seniors is obviously a different animal than being a junior, so though she is going through similar struggles as a senior, how to work through those issues is different than what she had to do when she was a junior.
And honestly, I really think her poor performance at 4CC was very much a timing and less so on nerves. Let's fact is after that killer LP at Nationals, it's hard to motivate yourself that quickly and do it all over again.
