The Revelstoke Acrobats had 13 members attend the first big competition of the year held in Burnaby over the Family Day long weekend! There was a total of nine medals won by the Acrobats contingent, including four gold, two silver and three bronze. With over 200 athletes from all over the province attending, our athletes did extremely well. With this highly competitive meet to even make a final was a big deal.

There were 16 top-10 finishes and a lot of personal bests achieved.

The gold medal winners were Summer Novakowski, Julia Dorrius, Jenna Bollefer, Josh Winger. Ainslee Arthurs has qualified with a funded score to attend the National Championships in Ottawa in May! She has three more meets to try and make another score! If she can make the score twice she will be the first athlete out of Revelstoke in over 10 years to compete at Nationals!

The coaching staff is so very pleased with the way everybody performed and are looking forward to athletes to clean up and progress their routines for the next competition in Kamloops in March.
