Club’s first trophy win at state titles
GYMNASTICS: Dalby gymnast Chantelle Callow has delivered the Dalby PCYC its first trophy from the junior state championships.
Chantelle finished third overall in the girls’ level four category to cap off what has been a terrific season for the club.
Coach Janelle Stewart said she could not have been more proud of the boys and girls who represented the club last week.
Chantelle’s achievement was one of several outstanding performances at the championships.
Philipa-Rose Simpkins achieved a score of 9.7 on vault, a personal best which was near perfect.
The Dalby PCYC won a combined 13 medals and ribbons during the junior state championships – its greatest haul in the club’s history.
Stewart said the past week had been special for the club.
“We have changed a lot of things at the club this year and it is great to see all of the gymnasts’ hard work paying off,” Stewart said.
“We are hopeful these results will inspire more young people in the community to join the club.”
Stewart was full of praise for Chantelle’s trophy, saying it had been the ambition of the club for many years to have one of their gymnasts achieve the feat.
“Being the first-ever trophy from the junior state championships is a pretty special achievement,” Stewart said.
“Overall, this has been the most successful junior state championships the club has ever competed in.
“All of our gymnasts, as well as our dedicated coaching staff, have been excellent for many years and these results are a massive achievement.”
