Four Campbell River gymnasts qualify for Western Canadian Championships

The Twisters competition held in Abbotsford, March 22-24 was host to trials to the Western Canadian Championships for both men and women.

Campbell River gymnasts did exceptionally well qualifying four athletes for Team BC and one possible alternate or wildcard to this year’s Western Canadian Championships held in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan at the end of April.

Brooklyn Batch qualified on the JO 9 team with a solid competition, competing for her first time this year due to an injury. She took the silver medal on bars and the bronze medal in the All Around. Jordan Loock won a bronze medal on vault and locked up a possible alternate or wildcard spot on the JO Level 9 under 13 team.

For the boys, Carson Ogg secured his spot to Westerns with a solid performance in the Men’s Provincial 5 category winning gold on the floor exercise and taking the silver medal in the All Around. Nathan Kerluck won his spot in the Men’s Provincial Level 4 division taking home the gold medals on floor, high bar and the All Around. Jackson Martin won the final birth to Westerns with a solid performance capturing the Silver medal on pommel horse and coming home in fifth All Around.

“Five athletes representing team BC is a huge achievement for our club,” head coach Todd Sader said. “Now we head back to work to prepare for the Provincial Championships and of course Westerns!”
