From June 11th to June 14th, hundreds of athletes from all over Western Canada came together in Port Moody, British Columbia to compete at Western Canada Cup in trampoline and tumbling. Saskatchewan sent a team of nine athletes and two coaches including three athletes from Gymnastics Adventure, Alex Stice, Hannah Metheral, Justice Ginnis and their coach Danni Roy.
Alex finished twelfth place on trampoline and eleventh place on double mini, just missing event finals. Alex and her partner Hannah finished fifth place in synchronized trampoline, taking home one of many ribbons won by Saskatchewan athletes. Hannah and Justice finished in the top ten in all three of their events in the preliminary competition ultimately qualifying them for event finals. Hannah finished tenth on tumbling, seventh on trampoline and she took home a silver medal on double mini. Hannah was also the youngest member of Team Saskatchewan. Justice finished sixth place on trampoline, she won the bronze medal on tumbling and was the double mini level three champion in the younger division.
Saskatchewan also qualified for the team finals on every event for the first time in quite a while! Alex Stice was selected for the trampoline team final, Hannah Metheral, for the double mini team final and Justice Ginnis for all three events in the team final. Saskatchewan was third place in the double mini team final, second place on tumbling and first place on trampoline.
For the first time EVER Saskatchewan took home the trophy for the top aggregate team! This award has been around since 1985 and finally we have brought it home to Saskatchewan!
Congratulations to all of team Saskatchewan and especially to Alex, Hannah and Justice!
