The Campbell River Gymnastics Association sent a large group to the 2014 Provincial Championships in Kamloops.

The field was strong and competitive and local athletes held their own coming home with multiple medals.

The Zone 6, level 2 team won the silver medal with a few Campbell River athletes on the team, and the Campbell River Gymnastics Association won the Silver medal team award for Level 4 women. What makes that award exceptional is that a team consists of five members and they take the top three scores on each event. Campbell River’s team only had three members so every score had to count.
