Gymnasts land top results at Prince George Invitational

The Williams Lake Gymnastics Club sprung into the month of May with impressive results

The Williams Lake Gymnastics Club sprung into the month of May with impressive results at the Prince George Gymnastics Invitational.

And for the WLGC’s older, level 6, gymnasts — they served double duty while also competing at the Zone 8 Championships on Sunday, May 5, following Saturday’s invitational.

Michaela Newberry, WLGC level 1 and 6 coach, said her gymnasts did extremely well both days, however, really shined during the second day of the competition.

“Kalli [Campbell] wowed the judges with a nearly flawless vault and is now the Zone 8 vault champion for level sixes,” Newberry said. “She also earned the ‘best vault’ award for all age groups in level six.”

Level one gymnasts from Williams Lake, meanwhile, competed during day one of the invitational, also impressing Newberry.

“The oldest three, Eloise, Jerricka and Bailee were placed against other athletes for the first time and came out on top. Eloise placed first overall with a first on vault and bars while Bailee warned third place n vault. I’m very impressed with their hard work.”

Meanwhile, WLGC level 2-4 coach Raeanna Brown, was busy with a large group of gymnasts at the meet.

The level ones and twos were up second to compete, she said, withe 58 level 1/2 gymnasts in their category.

Brown said her level 2 gymnasts said it was exciting to get to see so many of the same faces from the judges, to other athletes.

The older level twos also received rankings during awards while the younger 2s were placed gold, silver and bronze.

Up next were the level threes and fours, who also got to compete with level fives, which was awesome for them to see, Brown said.

“They were excited but also sad as the day before their teammate Laura Strang broke her nose and wasn’t able to attend the meet,” Brown said.

The WLGC is now gearing up for its last competition of the year: the Kelowna Ogopogo Invitational from June 8-10, 2019.
