Glacier Gymnasts soar at provincials

Eight girls traveled to North Vancouver to compete at the 2015 BC Provincial Championships.

Eight Glacier gymnasts strutted their stuff at the 2015 BC Provincial Championships in North Vancouver this past weekend.

“All the gymnasts’ performances seamlessly fit in with the Lower Mainland and other BC clubs,” said head coach Sandra Long.

“Almost everyone came home with an award and many brought home medals. These results show how amazing our Nelson gymnasts are. Our club’s gymnasts train 4 to 8 hours less per week than the clubs we compete against, and our girls look just as skilled and polished.”

She said she was pleased with the weekend’s outcome.

Abby Majeski competed in her first provincial meet in Level 6: 10 & Under category. She brought home two ribbons, came 7th in Floor Exercise and 10th on Uneven Bars.

Teagan McTague also competed for the first time in the 14-year-old category of Level 6, ultimately claiming the bronze medal for Floor Exercise.

Meanwhile Olivia Kelly won a gold medal for Floor Exercise, a silver medal for all-around performance, and took home 3 ribbons.

Gwen McCrory won the gold medal in Floor Exercise in the 13-year-old category, and took home a 10th place ribbon for Uneven Bars.

Brianne Stefani competed in Level 7 of the 11 & Under category and earned a bronze medal for her beam routine. She also received a 6th place ribbon for Floor Exercise.

Ella Keelan brought home 4 awards in the Level 8: 16 & Up category. She placed 7th for all-around performance and brought home three ribbons.
