32nd ANNUAL ACADEMY AWARDS
Outstanding Gymnasts Named at Annual Awards Banquet
At the Island Gymnastics Academy’s recent Annual Awards Banquet, the club’s top gymnasts were honored for the 2013-2014 season. Gymnasts were selected from each training group based on competitive results, work ethic, level of improvement over the year and sportsmanship. Participation medals were also awarded to the Academy’s Mini Tumblers to recognize their dedication and achievements in the pre-competitive program.
It was a busy year for the Academy’s competitive teams, who travelled to numerous competitions in the region as well as events in Bermuda, Dallas, Montreal, Ottawa, and Calgary. Island Gymnastics Academy also hosted the 2014 Atlantic Championships, and led team PEI at the Eastern Canadian Championships in Oshawa and the Canadian Gymnastics Championships in Ottawa. The club’s programs continue to grow with over 1000 registered gymnasts.
In the women’s program, award winners included Annika Landry, Victoria Zakem, Jacquelyn Taylor, Katie Gaudet, Rae-lee MacDonald, Natalie Haddad, Bria Gallant, Karisa Quinn and Ella MacDougall.
The men’s program winners included Issac Bourque, Gabriel Ing, Simon Burns and Scott Chandler.
