Provincial titles for Twisters

The Provincial Artistic Gymnastic Championships were held at the Langley Event Center last weekend, with almost 800 trampoline and artistic gymnasts competing to be the best in B.C.

Several Chilliwack athletes competed on behalf of Abbotsford-based Twisters Gymnastics at the event, which ran from Friday morning through Sunday afternoon.

Jessica Gibson competed in the P3 tyro division, taking silver on the floor. Gibson also won a team award, joining forces with Mission natives Vanessa Beckman, Katrina Penner-Loat and Justin Robinson.

Marquita Morison competed in the P5 novice division, taking the provincial championship on vault with bronze medal performances on the beam and floor.

On the boys side, Zachary Clay continued his fine season. Competing in the HP junior division, he claimed a provincial title on the vault, adding silver on the parallel bars and bronze on the floor and rings.

Clay has qualified for nationals, which will take place May 23-28 in Prince Edward Island.
