It has been an amazing competition for the Acrobats. Over three days of competition at the second BC Trampoline trials being held in Burnaby on Family Day long weekend, we have brought home eight medals. Devyn and Kaylin Gale, Summer Novakowski and Josh Winger all brought home provincial gold medals.
Kaylin also won a silver in her other event. Makenna Gallon won two bronze medals in her events. Alyssa Bollefer and Taila Gallon performed personal bests but just missed being on the podium, placing fourth.
Winger won a gold in level 3 double-mini trampoline and was fourth in the trampoline event. Novakowski won gold in level 1 double-mini trampoline. Isabella Mendonca was fourth in the trampoline event.
Taila Gallon finished sixth in level 1 double-mini trampoline.
All 12 athletes the club brought made a final and done extremely well. Julia McKenzie and Parker English placed sixth in trampoline and Maya McDowell and Veronica Cadden placed ninth in their categories.
It has been a fantastic competition weekend. The athletes and coaches are already getting excited for the next big meet in Kamloops mid March.
