With both interclub and provincial athletes enjoying some of their best performances of the season, the trampoline and tumbling crew representing the GymZone - Sudbury Laurels wrapped up the 2013-2014 calendar this past weekend.

All three of the interclub gymnasts would bring home medals, with Jay Norrie (advanced men's) and Halley Baker (advanced women's) claiming gold, while Symantha Welsh (intermediate women's) earned a silver.

In the provincial meet, Taryn Thompson cracked the trampoline top five all around (provincial 1 - 13-14 women's) thanks to a pair of routines that garnered some of the club's highest recorded scores ever, awarded an average score of 9.0 on her compulsory segment.

Showing significant improvement in a very tough class, Cassandra Ranger enjoyed a personal best 10th-place finish (provincial 2 - 15+), while Sebastien Larochelle (fourth - provincial 4 - 15+) and Paulena Moote (third - provincial 2 - 13-14 women's) also distinguished themselves.

Over on the tumbling runway, Emilie Honse finished her season with a strong showing in the provincial 3 - 15+ grouping. Ranked sixth going into her final pass, Honse moved up one more slot, capping off a very solid year.
