Williams Lake Gymnastics Club members flipped to multiple top finishes earlier this month at the Prince George Gymnastics Invitational.

Competing against teams from Prince George, Quesnel, Kitimat, Smithers and Fort St. John in several events including vault, bars, beam and floor, gymnasts were judged for an all around score.

Kalli Campbell (Junior Olympic 2, 2006/07), Nya Chutskoff (JO2, 2006/07), Hunter Jariette (JO3, 1999-2005), Thea Lutters (JO6, 2003-2005), Gabrielle Gracia (JO6, 2003-2005), Chloe Lutters (JO6, 1997-2002), Katie Chipman (JO6, 1997-2002) and Michaela Newberry (JO7) represented the club at the meet.

Campbell finished third all around in her division after achieving strong scores in vault and bars.

“The Prince George meet was very fun,” Campbell said.

“My favourite part was the halftime trampoline presentation. Those trampoline gymnasts were amazing.”

Chutskoff finished eighth, however, scored well in bars and beam — both for fifth-place results.

Jariette, meanwhile, flipped to a first-place result on vault helping her to a fourth-place all around finish in her division.

In the JO6 category Thea took sixth on bars and sixth on beam for a fifth-place all around result, while her sister, Chloe, was fifth on vault and sixth on beam for 10th in her age group.

Gracia bounced to 10th all around — achieving a seventh-place finish on beam — and Chipman took 12th in a large division.

Chipman said she was happy to finish the season off on a high note.

“It was my last meet of the season and a great one to end on,” Chipman said.

Newberry, in a very competitive JO7 category, finished fifth all around while taking a third-place score on vault.
