Be­nalla gym­nasts are third in team con­test

Benalla Ensign - - Sport -

The Be­nalla Demons placed third in the re­cent AMCOTeamGym Vic­to­rian Cham­pi­onships.

Held at the State Net­ball and Hockey Cen­tre in Parkville, the Be­nalla Gym­nas­tics Club’s rep­re­sen­ta­tives com­peted in floor, tum­bling and sin­gle mini tram­po­line events.

Gym­nasts com­pete in teams of six to 12 par­tic­i­pants to show­case their skills and work to­gether to pro­vide per­for­mances that will keep the au­di­ence on the edge of their seats.

All three ap­pa­ra­tus are per­formed to mu­sic, mak­ing it an ex­cit­ing and en­gag­ing com­pe­ti­tion for spec­ta­tors and teams. Teams can com­pete at three lev­els and can be sin­gle gen­der or mixed groups.

The Demons achieved an equal sec­ond for their floor rou­tine and third in tum­bling, with an over­all rank­ing of third.

TeamGym has been de­vel­oped by Gym­nas­tics Vic­to­ria to pro­vide a path­way for recre­ational and elite gym­nasts.

De­vel­oped Europe, the in north­ern path­way is open all the way to top in­ter­na­tional TeamGym com­pe­ti­tions in Europe.

This is the first time the Demons have com­peted in the TeamGym Vic­to­rian Cham­pi­onships, but co- coaches Ni­cole Briggs and Kait­lyn Hock­ing said they were ex­tremely proud of the ef­fort put in by the girls and their re­sults in the level two com­pe­ti­tion.

They said the Demons would con­tinue to com­pete in TeamGym com­pe­ti­tions around the state and re­fine their skills and rou­tines.

The team of gym­nasts con­sisted of Holly Mor­ri­son (cap­tain), Ge­orgie Morri- son, Emily Sims, Anna How­ell, Mad­di­son Mailer, So­phie Boyle, Zoe Lid­ding­ton, Jazmine Blyss, Sarah Neil­son and Iso­bel Os­borne.
