2019-12-09

No less than five different gymnasts representing the GymZone - Sudbury Laurels returned home with medals as the WAG (Women's Artistic Gymnastics) crew travelled to their first qualifier of the 2019-2020 season last month in Orangeville.

Among those reaching the higher end of the podium were first time provincial competitors Melina Doiron (Level 6 - Age 12 - silver on vault and beam) and Emma Hinschberger (Level 6 - Age 12 - silver on bars and all-around aggregate). "Melina went in with very little nerves, hit all four of her events, and demonstrated a very powerful vault, taking home silver on the event," said Laurels' head coach Terra Davidson.

"Emma had a strong showing on bars, hitting her hand-stand on that event and putting up a great score of 9.20," added Davidson. Also placing in the top three were Naomi Lake (Level 6 - Age 11 - bronze on bars and floor), Yasmine Larouche (Level 7 - Age 14 - bronze on vault) and Rachel Uguccioni (Level 9 - Age 16+ - silver on vault and floor).

Rounding out the list of local competitors were Abby Managhan (Level 7 - Age 14), Avery Roy (Level 6 - Age 10), Dylan Watts (Level 6 - Age 14), Chanelle Lazure (Level 7 - Age 16+), Abby Dupuis (Level 7 - Age 16+) and Isabella Sooley (Level 6 - Age 12).

The next qualifier for the WAG Laurels will come on the weekend of January 30th to February 2nd (2020), at the Country Hoedown Qualifier in Alliston.
