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.”
