CLARENVILLE, NL – Seven young gymnasts from Clarenville's Velocity gymnastics program competed at Campia Gymnastics Centre in Mount Pearl on Sunday, Feb. 11.
Erin Russell, Leah Watkins, Hannah Curran, Lilly Bennett, Mackenzie Parsons, Jordyn Peddle and Destiny Butt competed in four traditional artistic apparatus competitions including floor exercises, balance beam, uneven bars and vaults.
Head coach Leanne Seguin says the seven girls have been training for about four hours each week.
They each performed compulsory routines, meaning that each girl was required to perform the same routine exactly as they learned it.
The girls will compete again at Cygnus Gymnastics Centre in St. John March 2-3, and then head to provincials in Corner Brook March 23-24.
