Natimuk gymnasts’ end of year display
Natimuk and District Gymnastic Club’s annual display and presentation night reflected a successful year for its 230 registered gymnasts and coaches.
President Amanda Carracher said gymnasts performed group routines and individual displays to an appreciative audience.
“There was a great atmosphere in the gym. We even had a guest performance from former Natimuk gymnast Ryan Morrow,” she said.
“2017 was a busy year, with 230 registered gymnasts including our kindergym participants, victory at Men’s Junior Victorian Championships with our level two boys bringing home gold and Ben Grey winning his level.
“Once again our annual invitational competition in November was a successful weekend, with the club hosting more than 300 gymnasts from across Victoria and Mt Gambier.”
Mrs Carracher said coaches awards were presented in every level and each class on the night, including recreational classes.
Other presentations were the Gus Fordham Memorial Rising Star award, which went to Ben Grey and Georgia Schultz, and the Reg Hateley Award – presented to a male and female gymnast for their dedication and commitment to gymnastics during the year, showing good gymnastic ability, enthusiasm towards their training and positive behaviour to coaches and other gymnasts – which went to Hunter Campey and Anesu Gororo.
“Anesu was also recognised for achieving her state level 10 in gymnastics,” Mrs Carracher said.
A life membership was awarded to Janelle Payne.
