Competing at an event earlier this month in Pickering, the team showed all of the promise and potential that coach Kyle Lapierre hopes to tap into.
Leading the way with a gold-medal performance was Halley Baker, finishing first in the advanced interclub grouping.
Logan Drane also medalled, earning bronze in the intermediate interclub category, while Symantha Welsh took fourth place in the girls division of the intermediate interclub gymnasts.
Jay Norrie enjoyed a very solid competition, placing fifth overall in the advanced interclub level, while Macaulay Piche finished seventh in the beginners classification.
The results are particularly encouraging for this group, given that the interclub crew typically would not enter any competitions until the very end of the year (May/June) in most other seasons.
Understandably, Lapierre was beaming with pride over the routines completed by all of his young athletes, but most noticeably Baker, who was struggling with her confidence in the weeks leading into the event.
“This is an amazing accomplishment for Halley,” said Lapierre. “She should be very proud.”
All of the competitive gymnasts take to the road this weekend, with the women’s artistic squad in Oshawa, the men’s artistic team in Mississauga and the trampolinist heading to Ottawa for their first Ontario Cup event.
