Connor MacDonald competes in Level 5 national bracket
by Randy Pascal

Circumstances were not ideal, but Sudbury Laurels veteran tumbler Connor MacDonald was not about to bypass his first opportunity to compete in a Level 5 national athlete setting. Just back from a battle with both an injury and illness in the new year, MacDonald struggled to nail his double-twisting layout with consistency.

Thankfully, a pass that included six back-whips to a full twisting layout combined with a final pass performance that would see the local product stick his final three skills into a double back-tuck was enough to produce a final score of 109.100, good for a third place finish.

Perhaps more importantly, the gutsy effort created ample motivation for his teammates, with several returning home with some very impressive results. Hector Loiselle (Level 3 – Tumbling) not only secured a second place ribbon, but also achieved his provincial qualifying score, registering a 50.000, and was joined in this grouping by Victoria Baxter (Level 1 – Tumbling) with a score of 54.100.

Over on the trampoline, Kylie Baxter (Level 1 – Trampoline) was showing the way for the local contingent, riding a qualifying score of 79.960 to a silver medal placement. Mathieu Sisk (Level 2 – Trampoline) just narrowly missed reaching the podium, sliding into fourth place with another qualifying score, registering 83.415 in the eyes of the judges.

The crew will now prepare for the second qualifier of the season, scheduled to take place from March 22nd to the 24th in Niagara Falls.
