Gymnastics squad wraps up

The Woolwich ladies artistic gymnastics team ended their competitive season at the Marilyn Hayes Invitational meet in Newmarket on June 2-3.

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

“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.
