Vic State Championships Level 4 Results

Well, the preliminary for the Victorian Championships level 4 is over, and it was an incredibly tough competition!  Congratulations to Lisa, who came 9th overall and is off to Geelong on November 9th for the finals.

Congratulations also to Caity, Miranda and Jane, who all worked really hard and put in some excellent performances on the day.  Quite a few personal best scores there.

Vic State Championships L4

Overall the team came 13th, which is something to be enormously proud of at State Championship level.

Thumbs up of the day goes to Jane, who noticed during the medal presentations at the end of the session that an injured girl in another team had joined her team late and missed out on getting a medal. Jane told the official handing them out, to make sure the girl didn’t miss out.

It was also great to see the girls not just cheering each other on, but also the girls from Jets competing in the same group.

Well done – that’s the sort of club spirit that makes Mountain Districts such an awesome gymnastics club!

Jets Diamond Creek “Learn to Fly” Invitational L4-10

A busy weekend for Mountain Districts, with competitors in 5 different levels!

Grace got the club off to a great start, winning gold on Beam in the level 7 competition.  Jess also put in a solid performance in level 9.

Jets2013Lisa Horn followed up with a gold on Bars in level 4, and the level 4 team of Lisa, Miranda, Caity and Jane won silver overall. Well done, girls!

In the same section, the team of Amy, Yanna and Keeley performed well for their debut.  Who will forget Keeley’s face when she finally got over on her vault for the first time ever?  One of the biggest cheers from the crowd for the whole session, which was a great example of sportsmanship!

Stephanie and Jackie competed in the same session in level 8, and gave us all a great example of how to enjoy competing, even if things don’t go quite how you plan.  I’m sure we all hope Jackie’s ankle is back to full strength soon.

Our level 5 team of Shaniah, Rachael and Brittany did well, with Shaniah managing 6th on floor.  Great effort!
