AMHERST - Aerials gymnasts are back training at their home club after competing in Lower Sackville at the Taiso Atlantic Cup in Lower Sackville over the weekend.

They had four athletes finish first, second, third and fourth in their respective divisions.

"The girls were consistent all the way across the different events," said Michelle Landry, Aerials coach. "I'm really happy with the girls. They've been working really hard."

Nicole Baily finished first overall, Jessica Landry finished second, Emily Bacon finished third, and Mikayla Horton finished fourth.

Landry says Imogen Quinn did really good as well.

"She's coming into her own, she just needs one meet where everything comes together," said Landry.

Three gymnasts are attending a meet this weekend in Halifax: Kirsten Mason, Felicia Landry and Megan Cole.

"It's another opportunity for them to qualify," said Landry.

The Aerials club is holding their own invitational March 8 and 9. Three hundred gymnasts will attend the invitational.

"We're going to be running three full sessions, so it will be all day Saturday and all day Sunday."

The club is still looking for volunteers to help with the event.
