Chilliwack gymnasts cash in at Delta meet
Chilliwack natives Zachary Clay and Heather Vanhouck turned in gold medal performances at last weekend’s Delta Invitational gymnastics meet.
Clay and Vanhouck represented Abbotsford’s Twisters Gymnastics in the cash and carry competition. Judged differently from the usual competitions, cash and carry gives athletes the opportunity to earn some spending money. The top three in individual events, and the top six all-around, cashed in.
Clay earned his gold medal on the vault. Vanhouck scored hers on the floor.
Leanne Hellewell nabbed silver on the bars and all-around, and bronze on the vault and floor. Ericka Van den Brink got silver on the vault.
Marquita Morison placed seventh all-around in the cash and carry. In the national open division, she earned silver on the beam and bronze on the bars and all-around.
