Adrian Heemels won gold and Cassidy Mose claimed a silver to lead the North Island’s Funtastic Gymnastics and Trampoline Club in the B.C. Provincial Trampoline Championships Mar. 28-30 in Abbotsford.

Heemels earned gold in the P1 women’s individual trampoline and also won bronze in the double-mini trampoline division. Mose finished second in P2 women’s double-mini trampoline and placed 11th in individual trampoline.

Macy Hurley was a top-10 place-winner, claiming eighth in P1 women’s individual trampoline and adding a 15th-place effort in double-mini. In the same classification, Ashley Cadwallader was 13th in individual and 17th in double-mini.

Hurley and Cadwallader also competed in the P1 women’s synchronized trampoline, placing eighth in the club’s final competition of the season.

“What a great showing for our small North Island club, the first and only trampoline facility on all of Vancouver Island,” said Heidi Falconer, the club owner and coach. “What a great season, girls; now comes the hard work of getting ready for next year. Thanks for working so hard to be the best.”
