The Amherst News - - SPORTS - BY DAVE MATHIESON

The Aeri­als Gym­nas­tics Club re­cently hosted their an­nual The March Break In­vi­ta­tional at Amherst Re­gional High School.

“The meet went well. We had some stress­ful mo­ments with the weather but, like most gym­nas­tics meets, peo­ple braved the weather and came through and it was a suc­cess,” said Aeri­als coach Michelle Landry.

It was Kirsten Lawrence’s first time com­pet­ing at the Open 8 level.

“She did re­ally well in Level 8. I was re­ally proud of her,” said Landry. “She hit most of her rou­tines and she will prob­a­bly stay at Level 8 next year.”

The team is now pre­par­ing for the pro­vin­cial cham­pi­onships on April 6 and 7.

“With Easter com­ing up this week­end they bumped it ahead, so there’s an ex­tra week of train­ing,” said Landry.

Landry fin­ished by thank­ing all the spon­sors and vol­un­teers who helped make the meet a suc­cess.
