Gaggle of Gymnasts Compete in Mississauga

Press Release

 April 29, 2014

 

On the weekend of April 25-27th, fifteen gymnasts represented Swing, Spring and Flip Club at the Canuck Cup hosted in Mississauga at Futures Gymnastics Club.

 

The athletes ranged in age from 7 to 15 and competed in various levels, from Level 1 to Level 5.  Coaches Patty Bowman and John Craig were on hand to guide the gymnasts, some of for whom this was their first competition.

 

On Friday, Hannah Smith (Kincardine), Olivia McNabb and Christina Nicholson (Saugeen Shores) started the action in Level 1 (Ages 7 and 8).  Olivia performed excellent routines and scored Gold on Vault and Floor, Silver on Beam and Merit on Bars to end up with a ranking of Bronze all around.  Hannah scored Gold on Vault and Floor, Silver on Beam and Bronze on Bars for a Silver all around ranking.  Christina scored Gold on Vault, Beam and Floor with Silver on Bars to receive a Gold all around ranking.

 

Allyson Huggard (Kincardine) and Nadia Szulist (Saugeen Shores) performed next in the Level 2 Age 8 category.  Allyson won Gold on Floor, was ranked Silver on Bars and Beam and Bronze on Vault for an overall ranking of Silver.  Nadia scored Silver on Floor and performed well on all her events.

 

Sabra Cannon (Saugeen Shores) competed in the Level 4 category (Age 8).  She placed Silver on Vault and Balance Beam, and placed Bronze overall with clean routines and tight legs.

 

The Long Term Athlete Development model (LTAD) published by Gymnastics Canada states that athletes under 9 years old compete for rankings, but don’t compete directly against each other.  The ranking system gives Gold for marks that are 8.8 and above, Silver for scores between 8.25 and 8.75, Bronze for scores ranging from 7.85 to 8.2 and Merit for scores below 7.8.

 

On Saturday, Victoria Sousa and Aliesha Kosikar (both of Saugeen Shores) competed in Level 1 Age 9-13.  Victoria performed excellent routines, scoring 9.400 on Floor for 1st place, 8.850 on Beam, 8.7 on Vault and 8.25 on Bars (all 2nd place results) for an overall total of 35.2 and 2nd place at her first meet!  Aliesha started off a bit nervous, but overcame her initial hesitation and scored 8.950 on Vault for 6th place, 8.475 on Bars for 8th place, and was 9th place on Beam and Floor for an overall total of 34.475 and 10th place all around.

Samara Quanz (Saugeen Shores) competed in the Level 2 ages 10-11 group.  She impressed the judges with her Bar work and scored 8.550 for 5th place.  She was 7th on Floor, 8th on Bars and 10th place on Vault.  Her overall score was 33.4 and she was 10th place all around.

Abigail Baerg (of Saugeen Shores) was next in the Level 3 Age 10 category.  She scored 9.150 on Floor to take 5th place, 9.075 on Vault for 6th place, was 7th on Beam and 8th on Bars.  She placed 8th overall with a total score of 35.550.

Emma Martin (of Saugeen Shores) was also in Level 3 but in the 12 + age group.  She scored 9.575 with an excellent Vault to take 2nd place.  She then went on to score 9.0 on Floor for 4th place, and 8.9 on Beam for 5th place.  Her score of 9.150 on Bars in 5th place gave her a total score of 36.625 all around and put her in 3rd place overall.

Anna Rinn (of Saugeen Shores) was also in Level 3, in the 11 year old category.  She placed 7th on Bars, 9th on Vault and Floor and 10th on Beam for an all around score of 33.925 and 8th place ranking.

Kaleigh Novakowich (of Saugeen Shores) performed well in Level 4 Age 9.  She scored 8.750 on Vault for an 8th place ranking.

In Level 5, Alyssa Moorehead (of Saugeen Shores) performed a back tuck in her floor routine and scored 9.2 for 4th place.  Her Vault scored 9.250 for 4th place as well, and looking at the scores, it was a tight competition.  She was less than 2/10ths out of 1st place on Vault!  Her Bar routine took 5th place with a score of 8.7 and her Beam had a fall but scored 8.575 for 7th place.  Her total score of 35.725 put her in to 7th place overall.

Carsyn Cassidy (of Saugeen Shores) competed in Level 5 ages 14 +.  After a rough start on the balance beam, scoring 7.750 and 6th place, she had some difficulty on floor, which is usually her best event.  She still placed 5th on Floor with a score of 8.550, but wanted to make it up.  She pulled herself together and performed an amazing bar routine to score 8.9 and 1st place, then followed it up with a tight, clean vault which scored 9.250 and also took 1st place.  Her overall score of 34.450 put her in 2nd place overall.

 

The competitive team is now getting ready to compete in Vaughan on May 2-4th, and Burlington on May 9-11th.
