A total of 14 gymnasts from the Wheat City and Neepawa earned medals on Saturday and Sunday, and five Eagles — Taylor Bridgeman, Piper Robinson, Taylor Hartley, Kora Evans and Morgan Boryskeiwich — scored high enough all-around marks to advance a level next year. All that had Eagles regional stream coach Barb Jones happy.

"We’re ecstatic about that," she said. "To have them qualify out means that they and we have worked really well and a lot of progress over the year and that’s our goal."

The regional steam provincials was the biggest meet of the year as it featured over 300 gymnasts and every club from around the province. It was also a chance for some of the gymnasts to shine, and Bridgeman did just that.

The Brandonite was one of the most decorated gymnasts at the event, winning four gold medals, including the all-around title in the 7- and 8-year-old intermediate group with a score of 47.000. She also won gold in the floor, beam and vault.

Julianna Crocker of Brandon wasn’t far back as she finished in a tie for second in the category with a score of 46.000. She tied for first in the bars, finished second on the vault and was third on the beam and floor.

Hartley, Boryskeiwich and Chihiro O’Hara also medalled in their all-around competitions. Hartley won the all-around silver in the 10-year-old intermediate event with a score of 48.200. She also finished first in the bars and second on the beam.

Boryskeiwich was second in the 10-year-old advanced category with a score of 47.600. She also won a silver medal in the vault. O’Hara won all-around bronze in the 9-year-old intermediate group with a score of 46.550. She earned the gold on the bars.

Other Brandonites who won medals were: Evans (bronze, 10-year-old intermediate bars), Robinson (bronze, 11-year-old intermediate vault), Allison Bertrand (gold, 10-year-old advanced vault), Elise Luik (silver, 10-year-old advanced beam), Camryn Erickson (gold, 10-year-old intermediate floor), Jenaya Shotbolt (silver, 10-year-old intermediate floor and bronze in vault), Adrianna Quiring (gold, 14-year-old P2A vault and bars) and Emily Scramstad (bronze, 14-year-old P2A beam). Neepawa’s Tanner Speiss won bronze in 11-year-old advanced bars and floor.

Jones felt like some of her gymnasts had their best performances of the season at the meet, which was a great way to end the year.

She was also glad that Brandon was able to put on the event.

"It was wonderful, especially with the snow," she said. "It’s always nice for the club to host an event like this, but also for the kids to compete in their home gym where they’re comfortable and also have all their family that can come and watch and cheer for them."
