PIT Gymnasts Secure Success at WAG Metro North Qualifiers & Grips Invitational

WAG Metro North Qualifiers

One of the final chapters in the 2018 competition season; the WAG Metro North Qualifiers was held on the Sunday the 7th of October. This competition allowed the PIT Level 3-6 Gymnasts to highlight all the vast improvements they have made over the season. Goals were set and achieved by all Gymnasts through personal best performances and skills being performed to a high standard. PIT Gymnastics is incredibly proud of all Gymnasts who competed at the WAG Metro North Qualifiers and the tenacity they have shown throughout the year. The girls who did not qualify this year are extremely excited to begin working hard to achieve upgrade skills and we wish all of the PIT Gymnasts who have qualified for the Victorian Championships the best of luck for the Victorian Championship Finals.

Bars presented an opportunity for the Level 4 Division 2 gymnasts to demonstrate the improvements they have made on this apparatus. Madison has been working incredibly hard throughout her season to improve her bar routine and this was by her successfully competing her long swing pullover in her most confident bar performance of the season.

Alexis set the tone for a strong Beam performance and concluding her season without any falls on an apparatus. Following her strong performance, the girls remained calm and consistent, showcasing some of their best Beam routines. This allowed them to achieve third on this apparatus in an extremely competitive field.

These Gymnasts had a strong finish to their competition season with an energetic Floor performance. As a team, this is one of the apparatus in which they have made the biggest improvements, with all girls landing their tumbling lines and demonstrating greater tightness in all of their skills, enabling them to be awarded fourth on this apparatus.
