The Revelstoke Acrobats sent 12 athletes to the first competitive meet of the 2015 season, the three day Flip City Invitational in Langley, B.C. this past weekend. There was more than 500 athletes in attendance at this competition. The team did beyond amazing with every athlete that went making the finals.

There were 10 medals brought home, five of them being golds. Gold medal winners were Makenna Gallon, Kaylin Gale, Devyn Gale, Veronica Cadden and Josh Winger. Kaylin, Makenna and Josh made it on the podium in both their events.

Summer Novakowski earned a silver medal for her performance in double mini trampoline. Parker English also made it to the podium for a bronze medal in trampoline. Taila Gallon, coming off of an injury, did an outstanding job making the finals in trampoline and just missing out on her other event.

For Maya McDowell this was her first competition ever and she placed fifth in trampoline and was also first alternate for the double-mini trampoline final.

Alyssa Bollefer, Isabella Mendonca and Jenna Bollefer all moved up levels for this competitive season having to perform much hard routines. They all made the finals in their new level.

The coaches are so so proud of how the athletes performed in front of the judges and how hard the athletes have been working and training towards their goals. So stoked that for such a small community we have the best trampoline athletes in the province!
