Wave after wave of Laurels success
2024-04-05

Building a successful program lies, at least in part, in developing a steady stream of talent.

With top finishers in each of their three most notable brackets last month in Whitby, the Sudbury Laurels are well-positioned to cap off an impressive 2023-2024 campaign.

Competing in their third and final qualifier and readying for provincials, Camilla Burns (Level 6 - age 13) and Naomi Lake (Level 7 - age 15) would both love to put a ribbon on a season that has seen them soar to new heights.

A second place finish in the all-around aggregate for Burns is just the latest accolade in a year in which she has established new personal best scores on each event and, not surprisingly, her AA score as well.

"Camilla has worked hard on polishing her routines," noted coach Julie McEwen. "She has a new mindset and is determined to succeed."

An incredibly consistent performer through all three of her qualifying meets, Naomi Lake has also raised the bar in each discipline this year, earning a bronze in the all-around aggregate in her most recent competition.

The wave directly below the elder provincial gymnasts is equally as encouraging as the one-two punch of Gracie Currie and Klara Martic have proven to be a force to be reckoned with in the Level 4 age 10 bracket.

The duo secured the top two spots in their all-around aggregate standings, with Currie excelling most notably on the vault and bars (1st place), as well as the beam (second) while Martic made it a clean sweep of first place finishes with gold on both the beam and floor and bronze on vault and bars.

Making her competitive debut at Level 2 age 9, Madison Pelletier posted three big scores this year, showcasing the determination and work ethic required to maintain a pathway of excellence.

Competing in the XCEL classification, both Olivia Vienneau (Bronze - Age 10) and Cameryn Cyr (Bronze - Age 10) have indeed excelled.

New to the sport of gymnastics, Vienneau placed second in Whitby, registering a huge score of 37.70 in Whitby, improving from her first competition by more than one full mark.

Edging her by the smallest of margins was her teammate as Cameryn Cyr topped the charts with a score of 37.925, receiving personal best scores right across the board as she now makes the jump up another level for her next meet.
