At the competitions since the new year Maruisz and Lynnsay have dominated Riding Star Smooth and given the open professional final a run for their money. At City Lights, the first competition of the year for these two, they took 1st in Rising Star and 5th in the open professional smooth categories. Then two weeks late they traveled to Los Angeles yet again for a much larger set of competitors and took 1st in Rising Star and 6th in open professional smooth categories. Just one week later our little Champions traveled all the way to the other side of the country to Florida Superstars! Even with a new set of east cast couples and judges, Lynnsay and MZ placed 1st in Rising Star and got 3rd in the Open Professional Smooth Division.
