Campbell River gymnasts get high marks at highschool provincials

Campbell River’s high school gymnasts had a successful competition this year at their provincial championships held at Moscrop Secondary in Burnaby from March 8-10.

For some it was their very first championships, as a Grade 8 or 9, and for others it was their last as a Grade 12. For the majority of the year, these athletes train at the local Campbell River Gymnastics Association and their hard work paid off. Here are their Provincial results as divided by the schools that they represent:

Ecole Phoenix Secondary

Claire Pollock competed in her first ever High School Gymnastics as a WAG Level 3. This had the largest number of registered athletes for this level to date with a final count of 72.

Pollock scored well in all of her routines, earning her a 5th place on Vault, 28th on Bars, 8th on Beam, 8th on Floor, and an all around score to give her 10th place.

Carihi Secondary

Kamryn Brown also competed in WAG Level 3. Her efforts and routines helped her bring home a 12th place on vault, 29th on bars, 16th on beam, 7th on floor, and a 19th in the All Around.

Rhys Loland also competed in his first High School Provincials.

He competed as a MAG Level 2 and came home with a 7th place on Floor, 8th on Pommel Horse, 6th on Rings, 8th on Vault, 7th on Parallel Bars, 7th on High Bar, and finally an 8th in the all around.

Riley Michael, another first-timer for High Schools, did very well against his competition as a MAG Level 5.

His efforts earned him a 2nd place on Floor, 3rd on Pommel Horse, 3rd on Rings, 3rd on Vault, 4th on Parallel Bars, 3rd on High Bar, and a 3rd place in the All Around.

Level 5 for both MAG and WAG is the highest level of achievement in High School Gymnastics, so the competition was high.

Timberline Secondary

Leah Anderson is a Grade 12 athlete who has competed in High Schools for the past three years, and her efforts this year put her in a new competitive level as a WAG Level 4.

Her competition earned her a 16th on Vault, 20th on Bars, 17th on Beam, 18th on Floor, and 20th in the All Around.

Another great achievement was earning herself a $400 Bursary provided by Will Erichson of E-Stunts Performance Ltd.

Liam Deagle is another Grade 12 athlete who competed for his first High School Provincial Championships, but has previously competed as a National Open Athlete. This past month he competed as a MAG Level 5, and earned himself a 3rd place on Floor, 2nd on Pommel Horse, 1st place on Rings, 2nd on Vault, 1st place on Parallel Bars, 2nd on High Bar, and 2nd place in the All Around. Deagle also received a bursary of $3,400 from Mr. Erichson.
