Gymnasts wrap up season with Ogopogo Invitational

The Williams Lake Gymnastics Club capped off another successful season attending the Ogopogo Invitational Gymnastics Meet in Kelowna.

The Williams Lake Gymnastics Club capped off another successful season at the end of May, attending the Ogopogo Invitational Gymnastics Meet in Kelowna.

WLGC head coach Chelsea Bailey said everyone has showed improvement since she arrived to instruct at the beginning of the season.

“They all did really well,” Bailey said. “It was a good wrap-up competition because it’s not quite as intense as some of the meets.

“Some of the girls got their best scores of the year so it was a good way to end the year.”

First-year competitive gymnast Katie Chipman, in the provincial one novice division, picked up her best result on vault — a 10.9-point score and a third-place result. She also took seventh on bars, eighth on beam, fifth on floor and seventh all around in her division.

In level three men’s gymnastics Andrew Bettles secured a second-place all-around finish, placing second on floor (11.4 points), first on pommel horse (10.5 points), second on rings (9.9 points), second on vault (10.6 points), second on parallel bars (9.8 points) and second on horizontal bars (10.1 points).

In the provincial three open category Michaela Newberry finished sixth. Newberry picked up a third-place medal on vault with a 12.15 score, while also placing fifth on beam and fourth on floor.

Provincial two argo gymnast Thea Lutters, meanwhile, had her best result on vault — a 10th-place effort. She also placed 12th on bars, 10th on beam, 14th on floor and 14th all around in a large division.

Alyssia Suderman was seventh on vault, fifth on bars, seventh on beam, sixth on floor and eighth overall in the provincial one novice division.

Gabrielle Gracia, in the provincial one argo class, landed 13th on vault, 17th on bars, 13th on beam, 12th on floor and 15th overall in another category packed with gymnasts.

Provincial one tyro gymnast Ashia Chutskoff flipped to a 10th-place result on vault and an 11th-place score on beam and floor for 11th all around.

Also in the provincial one tyro division Chloe Lutters won a silver medal on vault (11.9 points), placed sixth on bars, seventh on beam and third on floor for a fourth-place overall finish.

The WLGC will now break until September, when tryouts will be hosted for the competitive gymnastics team.
