The Woolwich ladies artistic gymnastics team ended their competitive season at the Marilyn Hayes Invitational meet in Newmarket on June 2-3. It was their third competition of the season following earlier events in Brampton and London this season, with many of the girls posting personal-best performances against higher-profile clubs.

“The girls had a great season, and they showed a lot of improvement,” said coach Maria Code.

The Woolwich Gymnastics Club wrapped up their season last weekend in Newmarket, and hosts their annual Out With a Bang showcase today (Saturday). Back row: Nathan Shuh, Natalie Mayer, Alina Kehl, Robyn Porter, Allyson McIntee, Morgan Hanley, Sylvia Horst, Cameryn Goodall, Kelly Schwindt, Shawntanna Atkinson, Kayla Frey, Sarah Wideman, Hunter Fordham. Front row: Maddie Halstead, McKenna Heibein, Julia Code, Trinity Barnes, Grace McBay, Abby Hanley, Hannah Simpson, Audrey Parker, Kara Dietrich, Julia Ersil, Brianna Bettridge.

“They all did really well.”

Results from the invitational are included below.  Audrey Parker, Trinity Barnes, Maddy Halstead, Julia Code and Kara Dietrich also represented their club well, but due to their ages their results cannot be published.

Today (Saturday) is also the club’s 6th-annual Out With a Bang showcase for its competitive and recreational athletes. This event will give the gymnasts the opportunity to show family and friends what they’ve been working on all season in a fun and non-competitive environment. There will even be a demonstration by the youngest gymnasts at the club, ranging from 2-5 years of age, and clubs from Mitchell and Palmerston will also participate in the day-long event.

Out With a Bang is also the club’s biggest fundraiser of the season, and runs from 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. The Woolwich Gymnastics Club is located at 97 Earl Martin Drive, Unit 2, in Elmira.
