The Revelstoke Acrobats just returned from their second competition of the season. Flip City Gymnastics hosted the meet in Abbotsford, B.C. With more than 190 competitors this was a big meet with lots of hard divisions. There was 13 attending from Revelstoke. Here are some of the highlights:

Ainslee Arthurs competed in national trampoline for the first time, she had been out two seasons with a personal injury that might have prevented her from ever competing again, she has worked so very hard to recover and compete at this high level. When others might of quit she never gave up and was always there for her teammates making her coaches so proud.

Frankie Howe brought home hardware in all three events she competed in, with two silver and a bronze.

Both Chloe Suchovs and Frankie Howe put in their best performance ever in the Provincial 2 double mini trampoline final. Chloe scored a 9.9 with Frankie scoring 9.8. Scores are combined from the total of their four routines.

Other medal winners were: Stephanie Batke – gold in P4 trampoline; Josh Winger  – silver in P2 double mini trampoline; and Jenna Bollerfer – bronze in P3 trampoline

The schedule made for very long days and there was some very tired athletes performing but when it came time to compete they all did amazing. The next big meet the athletes are training for is the B.C. Provincial Championships from March 15-17 in Kamloops.
