The Revelstoke Acrobats attended the B.C. Provincial Championships last weekend. They had 17 athletes competing in this event. For Veronica Cadden, Julia McKenzie and Summer Novakowski it was their first  competition ever. At this big meets nerves and the ability to focus were a factor, but the coaches were very proud of their performances.

The athletes really stepped it up this weekend, competing new passes and routines. We had a  six-year-old completing somersaults, an  11-yearold doing double flips, an athlete doing multiple double somersaults in a routine,  and athletes doing somersaults with multiple twists.

At the provincial championships there was a new team event where clubs submitted teams with athletes from multiple levels. Fans and teammates were encouraged to cheer extra loud and wear flair and make signs. Revelstoke ended up placing third out of 15 teams and winning a plaque.

Frankie Howe proudly won a silver plaque in the provincial all-round event. All-round  awards are for  athletes competing in all three disciplines  and are based on scores from preliminaries. Other highlights were:

Stephanie Batke and Ainslee Arthurs won a gold in p4 synchronized trampoline.

Devyn Gale and Alyssa Bollefer won silver in under-10 synchronized trampoline.

Josh Winger placed second in both of his events in prelims but because of illness couldn’t compete his final. He ended up winning a bronze in p2 double mini trampoline.

Stephanie Batke made finals in both events and won a silver in p4 trampoline.
