NATIMUK and District Gymnastics Club competed in their first mini-competition of the season.
More than 100 gymnasts aged between four and 14 competed in the in-house meet. Coach Lynette Morrow said being the first competition of the season, it was a perfect chance to see how the students’ routines fared in a competitive environment.
“The meet showed that the students had promising form, but with a bit more tweaking and harder work we will have the routines perfected,” she said.
The girls competed across levels one to six while the boys competed from levels zero to four.
The recipient of this year’s Len Parsett award was Brody Hauselr.
Girls competed in vault, uneven bars, beam and floor while boys competed in the floor, pommel, rings, T-bar, high bar and vault areas.
Ms Morrow said competitions at Stawell, Warrnambool, Portland, Mildura and Mount Gambier would follow the weekend’s competition.
The season will end with the club’s annual invitational with 300 gymnasts set to compete in November.
“We are looking to be a lot more competitive this season,” she said.
