The fourth BC Cup trampoline event was held over the Easter long weekend in Port Moody, B.C.

The Revelstoke Acrobats Club took 12 athletes to the final provincial meet this season. They brought home nine medals, with Chloe Suchovs earning the only gold.

There were some amazing improvements this competition as the athletes stepped things up. There was a lot of great warm up turns but then once in front of the judges, their performance was not to their best.

Three routines were the best I had seen them do, only to mess up on the last two skills. Some of the girls at the start of this year were not making finals, but almost all attending made the top 10 final in at least one of their events.

Marissa Duncan will be retiring after this meet as she is moving on and attending university next season. She did the best I have ever seen her do, earning a silver and bronze medal in her events.

This was the last meet of the season for a lot of the athletes. The Western Canada Cup will be held in Calgary in June and nationals will be held at the end of May. The Revelstoke Acrobats have athletes attending both events.
