Jets Gymnastics Club members lived up to their name with soaring performances at the recent Gymstar Squad Meeting in Melbourne.
A team of 11 girls went to Footscray Gym Centre to compete in Level 4 and Level 5 events and hit some major heights.
Leading the list of shining stars was Heidi Merritt, 15.
Competing in Gymstar 5, Merritt finished first in the vault competition and placed equal sixth on bars.
Ella O’Donoghue, 11, was another to impress with an equal sixth place finish in the Gymstar 4 floor event.
Jets coach Jacci Johnson described the performances as impressive.
‘‘We were really pleased with the way all the girls performed across the event,’’ Johnson said.
‘‘For the Level 4 girls it was their first competition away from Shepparton and they coped well with the new experience.’’
Co-coach Courtney Bourke rated the level of effort at ‘‘110 per cent’’ and paid tribute to the team.
‘‘The girls did a great job out there, we were very happy,’’ Bourke said.
Next on the agenda for the Jets team is a competition at Box Hill in October.
