We debuted 2 new flyball dogs this year: Fitz & Finnick, who both earned their trifecta in their first tournaments! Many of our dogs raced to new personal bests this year and in total our dogs earned a combined 17 new titles, which is pretty amazing for a club that only has 12 active competing dogs! Congrats to all of our pups and their accomplishments:
Fitz: FD, FDX, FDCh, FDCh-S, FDCH-G, FM
Finnick: FD, FDX, FDCh, FDCh-S
Nista: FMX & FMCH
Raine: FG70K & #3 Toller in NAFA
We welcomed some new members and pups to our team this year including Robyn & Finnick; Christian & Danika with their pup Sky and of course Rowdy & Lil’ Kimchi! We also said goodbye to one of our vets as Rev left us in April, just before our home tournament.
As a team we had a rough start to our NAFA year last October, but we never gave up and kept clawing back until we reached our turnaround point at the OMG tournament in June. That Sunday we took 1st place in Regular 1 and we captured 1st place the 9 tournament days going forward; to once again earn the Region 10 Regular Championship for a 4th straight year!
We broke our personal best time 5 times this season, with 3 of those times standing as the Region 10 Record. Huge congrats to Nika, Fitz, Callie & Feist on such an impressive year! This was a new line-up for us and they exceeded our expectations. Big congrats also to Maya, Pongo, Raine & Brooke who broke the Vets record with an 18.232 run in June!
We are also super excited to see that we improved from #9 last year to #6 in the overall NAFA Champions Standings! We are in the company of some pretty incredible teams!
Now it’s time for winter training and getting those new pups ready to hit the lanes for the first time! 2019 is shaping up to be a great season for us, but there is lots of work to do before next April! Happy Winter Training everyone!
