Tweedsmuir gymnasts vault to the top
Two Cloverdale gymnasts made an impressive showing at last month's Fraser Valley high school gymnastics tournament.
Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary's Debbie Besoiu, 13, and McKaylie Taverner, 14, placed third and second overall at the Feb. 18 regional competition, held at the TAG Sports Centre in Prot Coquitlam.
Besoiu, a Level 3 gymnast, placed first on vault, and third on bars, beam and floor exercises, giving h a well-deserved final award of third all-around.
Teammate McKaylie Taverner placed first on both vault and beam events, third on floor, and seventh on bars, giving her a final award of second all around.
Coach Tara Irving says there are eight girls on the LTSS gymnastics team and it looks like six of them will be going to the provincials.
The 2011 B.C. High School Gymnastics Championships take place March 11 to 13 at Delta Secondary.
