LAUREN CARR ACHIEVED top spot on the podium in Novice/Open Level 2.

Chimo Gymnastics athletes got their season off to a great start with their Comox Valley PJ Meet.  Competing against gymnasts from Campbell River to Victoria, Chimo athletes pulled off some terrific results.

In the morning session Level 2 and 3 athletes competed with Sophia Mossie placing 1st on three of her four events and landing her on the podium with a second place finish overall.  Maiah Tanner had 5th place finishes on both the vault and bars to end up 7th overall in the Tyro Level 2 division.

In the combined Novice/Open Level 2 category Isabella Pelletier placed 5th overall, Toni Smith 6th overall, Caitlin Tatham 7th overall and Josee Jalbert 8th overall.  Lauren Carr achieved top spot on the podium in this category with first place finishes on bars, vault and floor with the high score of 13 on this last apparatus.

Chimo gymnasts owned all three spots on the podium for the Level 3 Novice/Open category with Sawyer Sturam scoring 1st in three of her four events for 1st place overall, Kaylee Guignard tying for 1st with Sawyer on bars was 2nd overall, and Kaitlin Hillard taking 1st place on the difficult apparatus of beam came in 3rd  overall. Teammate Ally Olson was out with an injury for this meet.

During the afternoon session Lindsay Pettis performed a bar routine that earned her 3rd place and a respectable 4th overall in the Novice/Open Level 1. In Tyro Level 1 Claire Knowles took 3rd overall with 1st place on both beam and floor and Kira Magor received 2nd on vault and 1st on bars to end up 4th overall. Maren Carter was 10th overall in a large category of Level 1 Argos.

Level 4 gymnast and coach Katie Symonds inspired all of the gymnasts attending the PJ Meet with her demonstration routines, competing her impressive straight-legged giant for the first time.  The progress that the Chimo gymnasts are making under the guidance of coaches Ford White and Toni Vance and their team of coaching staff was evident at this first meet of the season, a club spokesperson said.
