National Stream Cup Results

CCGC's girls did fantastic in Mississauga at the National Stream Cup meet.  

Kiana Orom and Diana Dick represented Capital City in the Pre Novice Elite category. Kiana stuck her beam with a few new skills in her routine including her standing layout step out!  She also did a great bar routine which placed her 9th.  Diana placed 5th on bars and floor on Day 1, which meant she got to compete in event finals for her very first time. Diana did great on Day 2, and received 4th place on both bars and beam.

Alyson Arcand and Ayrie Freedman were on Alberta's National Novice Team.  Alyson finished 6th AA and was the top Alberta finisher! She made event finals on floor, vault and beam and came home with a bronze medal on beam! Ayrie Freedman finished 9th AA and stuck her beam routine for a score of 13.2! She made finals on beam and ended up in 7th. Alyson and Ayrie contributed greatly to the Alberta National Novice team's silver medal!

Brooke Wilchuck competed on the National Open Team for Alberta.  Brooke had a very consistent meet.  The team started on Beam and Brooke was chosen to be Alberta's first competitor.  With only a few wobbles she ended up sticking her routine, which was a great way to start off the team competition. Brooke was by far the youngest on the team, and was able to contribute 2 scores towards the team's All Around!

CCGC's Think Pink Leap Event!

Capital City's Think Pink Leap Event was a huge success.  There were 53 athletes who attended the Physical Abilities component today, and there will be 32 girls testing Skills tomorrow.  Our Think Pink bake sale and body suit bingo went over great, and we were able to raise over $700 towards our Think Pink campaign.  Thank you so much to everyone who helped out and baked goodies for the sale.  Special thanks to Renea and Cindy for all their work on the bake sale, and to Kelly Dick for donating the 2 beautiful leotards.

Taren's LEAP group tested Copper Physical for their very first time.  Not only were they super cute, but they did great! Georgia had Katy and Katie test both Bronze components for their first time. Yasmine tested Copper Physical.  Adrienne tested Copper Skills and got her Copper pin!  And Emily tested Bronze skills for the first time.  Great job girls!
