The Revelstoke Acrobats competed in the third big meet of the year this weekend in Kamloops, where more than 300 athletes showed off their stuff on the trampoline.

The club had some amazing results, again proving some of our athletes are the best in the province.

Josh Winger won gold in both of his events and also performed well enough to mobilize to move up to the national level and compete for Team BC.

Makenna Gallon also competed well enough to top the podium in both her events winning two golds.

Summer Novakowski in double mini trampoline and Devyn Gale in trampoline also brought home golds, beating out the rest of the province in their levels.

Kaylin Gale performed great, winning a silver and a bronze in her competitions.

Parker English and Isabella Mendonca both had personal bests and earned silver medals in trampoline.

For Saelin Cadieux and Sani Supinen, it was their first competition ever. They both stepped things up in their routines making the finals.

We had 14 athletes attend this competition. There were a lot of great placings, personal bests and team spirit. The coaching staff is so so proud of the way all the athletes have been rocking it this year. We are looking forward to a great provincial championships in May.
