On April 12 the Thompson Tumblers gymnastics club travelled to Beausejour to compete in the regional stream provincial championships. Eight gymnasts ranging in ages from nine to 13 and levels JO 2 – JO 4 travelled down to compete.
First to compete in session two was Michaela Roeckenwagner for JO 3 age 12. Michaela placed 11th on vault, third on bars, 13th on beam, 10th on floor and 21st all-around.
Next up to compete in session three were Hannah Haas, Jadyn Medwid and Brooklynn Halcrow for JO 2 age 10 and Madison Jackson for JO 2 age 13. Hannah placed seventh on vault, fourth on bars, seventh on beam, fourth on floor and seventh all-around. Jadyn placed 12th on vault, 18th on bars, ninth on beam, fifth on floor and 20th all-around. Brooklynn placed sixth on vault, 17th on bars, seventh on beam, fifth on floor and 26th all-around. Madison placed first on vault, beam and floor, second on bars and first all-around.
For session five we had Kendal Jonasson for JO 2 age nine and Keiryn Robertson for JO 2 age 12. Kendal placed fourth on vault, 13th on bars, 16th on beam, 10th on floor and 26th all-around. Keiryn placed fourth on vault, second on bars, third on beam, third on floor and third all-around.
Last to compete, in session eight was Nadia Wilson for JO 4 age 13. Nadia placed third on vault, sixth on bars, seventh on beam, eighth on floor and sixth all-around.
This was our final competition for the season and what a great ending to the year. It should be noted that due to the large number of gymnasts registered for provincials, many of these girls were competing against 30 to 40 other gymnasts, and they did extremely well and should be very proud of themselves. They put in the hard work throughout the year and it paid off.
Thank you to all of our coaches and gymnasts for their hard work and dedication this season. Great job, everyone!
