Four area gymnasts are heading to the Eastern Canadian Championships after placing in the top six in their respective divisions at the recent provincial champ-ionships in Amherstberg.

Three of the gymnasts hail from the TRYumph Gymnastics Academy on Ogilvie Road, while the fourth is a member of the Tumblers Gymnastics Centre.

Stacey Lelei from TRYumph placed second overall in the Level 7, age 14 division thanks to a pair of first place routines on vault and uneven bars in which she scored 9.366 and 9.45 respectively.

Lelei has high hopes heading into the Eastern Canadian Championships which are being held in Summerside, P.E.I. from May 9-11. Although she placed first on vault and uneven bars, she finished eighth on floor and beam, which means she still has a lot of room for improvement.

Fellow TRYumph gym member Adelyn Hiscocks placed second overall in the Aspire 1, 9- to 11-year-old division. Hiscocks was the picture of consis-tency, placing second on vault and fourth on floor, uneven bars and beam. Her highest score came on vault where she earned a 9.499 from the judges.

The third TRYumph member to earn an invitation to the Eastern Canadian Championships was Annika Magneron who placed fifth in the Aspire 1, 9- to 11-year-old division, despite winning the gold medal in the vault event with an impressive 9.633. She also placed third on beam, but a fifth on floor and a sixtth place result on the uneven bars means she also has room for improvement heading to Summerside.

The lone Gloucester Tumbler heading to P.E.I. is Olivier Carriere who placed third overall in the Level 1, 10- and 11-year-old boys division.

Carriere had high hopes heading into provincials having finished in first place in a pair of Ontario Cup meets in January and March. He will be looking to win a medal of a different colour when he travels to P.E.I. next month.
