Local gymnasts gain valuable experience at provincial meet

Local gymnasts Jordyn Kelly, Madeleine Maguire, Daniella Chan, Trista Barnes, and Trinity Barnes represented the Woolwich Gymnastics Club at the Level 3-5 WAG (Women’s Artistic Gymnastics) Ontario Championships June 1-4.

This is the second year of the Ontario Championships where more than 1,300 gymnasts from across Ontario competed in the four-day event. The competitive gymnasts had to place in the top-40 in their age group as well as their level to make it on to provincials.

“They did really well, most of the girls had their season highs at the meet, which was great regardless of how they placed,” said Maria Code, head coach at the Woolwich Gymnastics Club, noting that they only went up to eighth place in each of the divisions.“We had a couple of girls place on the podium, so that was exciting.”

Trinity Barnes finished in seventh place on balance beam in level five. Barnes was called up just before the competition, after originally being placed as an alternate for provincials.

Barnes younger sister Trista, placed forth on vault, sixth in bars, seventh in floor, and seventh all around in level four.

This was Trista’s first time meeting the age requirement to compete at provincials. Heading into the competition, she was ranked eighth in Ontario for her level and age.

“They just had a great season. They all progressed well through their higher levels and we look forward to training for next year, and to see if we can match how well we did this year,” said Code.

Although there is no nationals for this level of gymnastics, the girls will continue to train throughout the off season in preparation for level tests in the upcoming competitive season.
