The Acrobats attended their first competition of the year last weekend.

We had a great showing. The club took 14 athletes to the Burnaby meet and every athlete that competed made at least one top 10 finish. For Charley Hill, Karysn Powell, and Starr and Scott Novakowski they were competing for their very first time ever, with a lot of the other athletes competing for the first time in a higher level.

All the athletes represented themselves the club and the city very well, showing great poise. Some of the highlights included Josh Winger earning a gold on double mini trampoline with his score qualifying him to mobilize to the national level and a spot on the B.C. team to nationals.

Summer Novakowski and Makenna Gallon both earned two podium finishes each.

Isabella Mendonca and Charley Hill both achieved a silver medal in their trampoline levels.

Devyn Gale earned a bronze in double mini trampoline.

Veronica Cadden, Julia Mckenzie, Parker English, Taila Gallon, Kayln Gale all made finals and had a great introduction to the season.

The next meet will be held in Kamloops from March 17-20. The club will have a record 29 athletes competing at this event, more than doubling our numbers from last season. The athletes are working on stepping up the routines and polishing off skills until then.
