ESTEVAN - Four members of the Estevan Gymnastics Club competed at the provincial competition in Yorkton from May 13-15.

Lila Hale, Bergen Kersey, Haley Murphy and Carsyn MacDonald were the athletes who qualified.

Hale was third on the floor to win a bronze medal. She also placed seventh on the beam and bars, and wound up seventh overall. Kersey placed seventh on the floor and Murphy was fifth on the vault.

To make it to provincials, athletes needed to attain the requisite scores at two meets they attend throughout the competitive season.

“The girls fared well at provincials,” said competitive team coach Rebecca Fedyk. “This season we had an athlete competing at our club’s highest level ever. She ended up with a bronze medal on floor.

“The athletes have all came so far this season and we we’re so happy to finally get back to in person competitions after COVID had shut them down for the past 2 1/2 seasons.”

Provincials were their last meet of the season, but the gymnasts still continue to practise until the end of May. Then some will sign up for spring and summer practices as well.
