ISABELLA PELLETIER FINISHED third overall in the Level 2 Open category at the Garden City Meet in Saanich.

Chimos post top-10 finishes

Gymnasts perform exceedingly well at Garden City Meet in Saanich

The 31st annual Garden City Meet in Saanich brought athletes together from all over the Island and from as far away as Langley and Washington State.  Chimo gymnasts brought home several top-10 finishes from the garden-and-flower-themed event.

In the Pre-Argo category, Sydney Howe produced silver in all four events while her sister, Taylor Howe, competed in the Argo 1 category finishing with a 4th place on bars and a 6th place overall.

Josee Jalbert continued the season with another strong meet, finishing the Level 2 Novice category in 3rd place overall while Kira Magor finished 10th overall in the same category.  Also having a strong season, Isabella Pelletier tied for 2nd on beam and was 3rd on bars finishing 3rd overall in the Level 2 Open category.  In the same category, Toni Smith and Hannah Vallevand had strong top-10 finishes with 9th and 6th on vault respectively.

Tyro Level 3 Sophia Mossie was 2nd on vault, 2nd on beam and topped it off with her 1st place floor routine for a final position of 4th overall.  Kaylee Guignard had a fantastic meet with 1st on both the uneven bars and the beam and 2nd on vault finishing with a fantastic 2nd place overall in the Level 3 Novice category.

The Open level 3 category was well represented with Kaitlyn Hillard, Sawyer Sturam and Lauren Carr.  Hillard closed out the top ten, Sturam captured 1st on bars, 3rd on vault and finished 6th overall.  Lauren Carr achieved 1st on vault – bringing home the Most Dynamic Vault award, 1st on floor, 3rd on beam and was 2nd place overall.

All of the athletes have been training very hard, most for 16 hours every week.  It is a long and arduous road to gain the new skills, add them to their routines and compete them for the first time at meets such as these.

Chimo coaches have guided these young athletes to achieve personal goals this year.  The hard work on the part of the athletes and their coaches can be seen in the team’s results this season.

The last meet of the year will be Island Championships, which will take place June 8-9 in Port Alberni.
