All six Revelstoke acrobats won medals at the Western Canada Cup in Port Moody

By Jef Kline, Revelstoke Acrobats

This weekend Port Moody, B.C., played host to the Western Canada Cup. The best provincial level trampoline and tumbling athletes from the four western provinces competed. Revelstoke had the best showing in years at this event, with seven medals won. The club only sent six athletes to this great event. Three athletes won their events and were crowned Western Canadian Champion.

Summer Novakowski rocked a first place in the Level 1 U11 double-mini category with some perfect stuck landings. She also did well taking the bronze medal in her Level 2 trampoline competition.

Devyn Gale had an amazingly strong showing during the Level 1 12-year-old trampoline preliminary round and was then able to maintain her lead, earning the top spot in the tough competition final. Kayln Gale performed a superb routine in the finals, coming from behind to place on top of the podium.

Parker English’s hard work in practice paid off and earned her two medals this weekend — a silver in trampoline and a bronze in the double-mini trampoline event. Isabella Mendonca got to wear a silver medal around her neck because of her focus on her good sharp routines.

Revelstoke athlete Josh Winger was representing the province as part of TEAM BC. He moved up to pre-national Level 4 double-mini trampoline for this event and placed fifth. He is now working hard training for nationals in July.

This was an absolutely fantastic way to end the season for the provincial level athletes of the Revelestoke Acrobats. They all improved so much this year and the coaching staff is looking forward to building an even stronger team for next year.
