The Revelstoke Acrobats competed against top-level athletes from the western provinces at the Western Canada Cup in Port Moody this past weekend.
Revelstoke Acrobats Stephanie Batke, Jenna Bollefer, Frankie Howe, Isabella Mendonca and Devyn Gale tested their skills against the best in Western Canada, and achieved some outstanding results at the June 7–9 competition.
Here are the highlights:
— Frankie Howe placed fourth out of 122 athletes in the all-round event and earned a silver medal. In this discipline, athletes compete in all three events and their preliminary scores are then added together. Howe made the finals in all three events and earned her silver medal in trampoline.
— Isabella Mendonca made the finals in both events she entered and earned a bronze medal in double mini and a sixth place in trampoline.
— Stephanie Batke placed fourth, just missing a medal in the highest provincial Level 4 competition.
— Jenna Bollefer had a shaky preliminary round but pulled it together in trampoline finals and completed the highest scoring routine in her group and moved up three spots to seventh.
— Devyn Gale was attending her first inter-provincial big meet and did amazingly well. If she had not landed her last skill on one foot she would have made the final for sure. She ended up 15th in trampoline and 21st on double mini trampoline.
