The Revelstoke Acrobats just returned from their first competitive meet of the season in Burnaby, B.C. There was more than 180 athletes in attendance.

Some of the highlights were Frankie Howe bringing home gold in P2 trampoline and a bronze in tumbling; Stephanie Batke winning a silver in P4 trampoline, and Marissa Duncan held her spot in the finals to earn bronze in P3 double mini trampoline.

Just missing the medals in fourth place were Jenna Bollefer P3 trampoline, Alyssa Bollefer in the under-10 dmt, Isabella Mendonca in P1 trampoline, and Kayla Fenwick in P3 trampoline. Julia Dorrius did a good routine and just missed out on making the finals, placing 11th.

Being the first meet of the year and with a new level structure in place, there was some nervousness and surprises but all the athletes made the coaches proud and extremely happy.

They will now be working hard to perfect and polish off their routines for the next meet in Abbotsford at the end of the month. See below for a list of full results:

Frankie Howe: P2 12u tramp 1st; P2 12u double mini-trampoline (dmt) 10th; P2 12u tumbling 3rd
