Eleven gymnasts from the Cariboo Chilcotin Gymnastics Association travelled to the Ogopogo Invitational in Kelowna June 5-7.

A total of 750 gymnasts competed in the competition from B.C, Alberta and the Yukon.

It was the last meet of the year competing with the new Junior Olympic Program that Gymnastics B.C adopted this season.

CCGA coach Annie Glanville said the Ogopogo Invitational is always a challenging meet due to the sheer number of competitors.

“The Ogopogo meet is by far the toughest competition for our club,” Glanville said. “These gymnasts have worked so hard and I am really proud of them.”

Here are the results:

Competing in the Junior Olympic level 2 category Kylie Syme took silver overall, Brooke Syme won silver overall, Nya Chutskoff claimed silver overall, Zaidee Campbell won silver overall and Kalli Campbell earned silver overall, while Elise Carson finished with a bronze overall.

Competing in the Junior Olympic level 3  category were Hunter Jariett, who took fourth on vault and bars, and Abayah Hunt, who worked to a gold on vault.

In the Junior Olympic level 6 category Thea Lutters leapt to sixth on vault, while Gabrielle Gracia claimed 11th on floor.

CCGA’s highest competing gymnast was Michaela Newberry in the Junior Olympic level 7 category where she balanced her way to fourth place on beam.

The Ogopogo Invitational now caps off the competitive season for the CCGA, who attended multiple competitive meets throughout the season.

“It was a great end to their season and I look forward to seeing what they can accomplish next,” Glanville said.
