At last month’s B.C. High School provincial gymnastics championships in Delta, the ripple of strong performances from Moscrop athletes garnered acclaim.
The team finished fourth for a third straight year, this time among more than 80 schools represented.
Led by Level 3’s Maddy Gomes, who finished fifth all-around, the team continued to put up strong point totals at the intense meet.
Gomes recorded the top score on beam in the highest category in the competition, against a pool of 60 athletes who primarily are elite club competitors. She also finished fourth-best on floor.
In Level 2, Maya Mah posted the eighth-best total among more than 50 competitors, with the fifth-best score on vault. Teammate Karen Warren placed 21st all-around, with her floor routine scoring fourth-best. Michele Mai, meanwhile, wrapped up in 25th place.
Katrina Dang, Joanna Larpin and Eugenia Demendeeva were in a close battle for a podium finish, with Dang scoring bronze in senior girls’ Level 1. Dang’s score was highlighted by a third-place showing on beam. Larpin placed fourth all-around, recording a seventh-place result on floor.
In fifth spot was Demendeeva, who collected the fifth-most points on floor.
Teammate Kazane Zen finished 18th all-around.
In junior girls’ Level 1 competition, Sophia Battiston garnered third-best score on beam and fourth on floor, en route to 14 all-around. Also making top-20 finish were KayAnna Vu, with the fifth place result on floor, for 17th all-around, and Emily Lavin, at 17th overall, with the fourth top score on floor.
