Terrace peaks roll out the welcome mat for annual meet

Teams from Kitimat, Smithers and Terrace competed at the Terrace gym

For the five members of the club’s gymstart group

The Terrace Peaks Gymnastics Club hosted their annual meet two weekends ago, with clubs from Kitimat and Smithers joining the Terrace club at the gym.

Aside from providing an opportunity for more seasoned gymnasts to test their skills, the event marked the first official meet for the majority of the club’s gymstart group (ages five and six). It was also the level one club’s first competition in the provincial stream after competing in the gymstart program last year.

Gymnasts in the gymstart program are Maia Bee, Hanna Lees, Kimberly Lewis, Lily Macdonald, Suzanne Lombard and Maddi Ireland. They all competed in Gymstart Level 1 Skills and Physical abilities, receiving certificates and medals.

Five athletes competed in Provincial 1. P1 Argo: Morgan Ireland, Amanda Yoo, who placed third overall, Savannah Medieros and Ella Almgren. This was their first competition in the Provincial stream after competing in the Gymstart Program last year. And in P1 Tyro, Terrace’s Dawson Lewis placed first overall.

And five athletes competed in the Provincial 2 category, with Maia Guerierro placing first overall, and Charlize Bretherick placing third overall in P2 Argo. In P2 Tyro, Maya Ebeling placed second overall and Ashlee Monsen placing third overall. In P3 Tyro, Ann Zettler placed third overall.

The Interclub team, the club’s advanced recreational group, competed as well.

“This was the second year we had our Interclub team compete and they all did very well,” said coach Ambra Marak.

The club’s next meet is Omega in Coquitlam at the end of the month, with the BC Provincials Championships happening after that in Kamloops.
