Eight members from the Revelstoke Acrobats competitive trampoline team travelled to the coast to compete in their third competition of the year Feb. 25-26.
Some athletes finished the weekend with personal best performances and came home with ribbons and medals to show for their hard work.
Frankie Howe stood on the podium twice, earning herself a gold medal in power tumbling and a bronze medal in double-mini trampoline. She was the only acrobat to compete in the tumbling event and also earned a seventh place ribbon on the trampoline.
Stephanie Batke was very close to receiving two medals, placing fourth in both trampoline events.
Also in level ‘A’ trampoline, which is the highest provincial level, were Jordan Vandenberg-Clark, (seventh overall in this event) and Marissa Duncan (11th place in both events).
In the very competitive ‘B’ level on trampoline, Chloe Suchovs placed 13th overall, Kayla Fenwick 11th and Jenna Bollefer fifth.
On the double-mini trampoline, Jordan Vandenberg-Clark was 13th, Jenna Bollefer 11th, Chloe Suchovs 10th and Kayla Fenwick ninth.
The only athlete to compete in the ’10 and under’ category was Isabella Mendonca, making the finals and earning an eight place finish on trampoline and 16th in double-mini.
The Acrobats are gearing up for its biggest and toughest competition of the year on Mar. 16-18 at the Kamloops Tournament Capital Centre. This will take place over the first weekend of Spring Break and thus provide an excellent opportunity for a day trip to see the Revelstoke Acrobats compete against teams from all over B.C.
Our spring session will begin after Spring Break and we will be accepting registration for these classes beginning this Friday, Mar. 9. For more information, please call the Acrobats at 250-837-5895.
