UPDATED: Photos - Gladstone coaches loved what they saw
GYMNASTICS: Gladstone coach Addie Kiley said she could not ask for anything more from her WAG team at the Central Queensland Regionals.
Several Gladstone gymnasts achieved first place in a variety of disciplines and classes.
OTHER ACTION PICS FROM SUNDAY MORNING:
Ava Bourke finished top in the level five open category with Neve Smart third.
Felicity Webb (level six, under-12), Nikola Sorensen (level six open) and Jenna Gaunt, in the level five (U11) class, also finished first.
"It was a proud moment for me as a coach to see the athletes perform with such grace and poise," Kiley said.
"It takes a lot of confidence to perform on your own in front of such a large crowd."
Kiley said Elle Hetherington, Sorensen, Laylanie Willie, Webb, Kaye Ng, Gaunt, Zara Howlette, Smart, Bourke, Alissa Warner, Ashlyn Nancarrow and Jasmine Miller have all made the CQ regional team that will compete at the Junior State Championship in Brisbane next month.
Gladstone Gymnastics Club administrator Amy Dew said there were other upcoming events.
"Our ACRO gymnasts are heading to Gold Coast this weekend for the ACRO States," she said.
"Then after that our ACRO, MAG and WAG gymnasts will head back to the Gold Coast to compete in the 2019 National Clubs Carnival."
That will be from September 11 - 29. There will also be a WAG clinic for the CQ Regional in Gladstone on October 26-27 followed by the Annual Awards night and first weekend of December.
