Acrobats spring upwards at B.C. Provincial Championships

Several Revelstoke acrobats reach podium at B.C. trampoline championships in Port Moody last weekend.

The Revelstoke Acrobats attended the B.C. Provincial Trampoline and Tumbling Championships last weekend in Port Moody.

This was the largest championships in recent years, with some of the categories having more than 30 athletes, with only the top 10 making the finals.

All 12 gymnasts that attended from the club did amazing by making at least one final each. There were so many highlights and personal bests achieved; the coaches were very pleased with how the club performed.

There were three provincial champions crowned from Revelstoke. Summer Novakowski and Veronica Cadden earned top spots on the double-mini trampoline, while Kaylin Gale took the top of the podium in her trampoline event. Summer also made the final in her trampoline event, placing fifth.

Josh Winger brought home two silver medals in his events and has now been named to represent Team B.C. at both the Western Canada Cup and the Canadian National Championships.

Devyn Gale just missed top honours, earning a silver medal on trampoline and a fourth place in her double-mini event.

Parker English bounced up two placings to a bronze medal in trampoline and finished fifth in her other event. Makenna Gallon moved up a grouping for this event and had two outstanding performances, just missing the podium with a fourth place in each of her categories.

Alyssa Bollefer, Taila Gallon, Isabella Mendonca, Hannah Winger, and Julia McKenzie all showed great routines, making the final in at least one event.

All the athletes have been training and working hard all competitive season and the coaches are so proud that all that hard work has payed off with these impressive, awe-inspiring results. With this meet being the last competition of the season for some of the athletes, it is now time to get back to training new tricks and skills for next year.
