By
From page B3 | February 14, 2013 |

Davis Diamonds gymnasts Rebecca Hill, Amanda Braun, Kate Miller and Kadence Waggoner each won at least one gold medal as the local team competed in the recent 25th anniversary Gold Country Classic at the Oakland Convention Center.

At the youngest Level 8 division, Hill swung a clean, fast and strong bar set that was good enough for second place, then won beam (9.1) and floor (9.0) to take bronze all-around. Bram made a statement in the older Level 8 division, sticking a high-piked Tsukahara vault to win the event with a 9.15. She then captured the floor gold (9.2) to finish second in the all-around. Davis teammate Micaela Everitt was third on floor (9.025) and beam to take fourth in the all-around.

Level 9 gymnasts Chloe Chan and Isabela Martinez each had their bright spots as Chan was fourth on beam on her way to fifth place all-around and Martinez stuck her vault to earn a 9.0.

Nicole Bradshaw, competing among the youngest Level 7 gymnasts, vaulted to a personal-best score then continued her strong work on bars to nab sixth place. In a high-scoring division, Bradshaw took 11th all-around with 34.05, a good enough score to qualify her for regionals. A few spots back was Diamonds teammate Karolina Perkins (14th all-around) whose performance was highlighted by a 9.025 on vault and a fourth-place floor routine (9.325).

In the older division, Clara Riggle placed fourth on vault (9.25) and second on bars and floor (9.225), to finish fourth all-around, while Miller won vault with a sensational 9.425. Cordelia Hsiao vaulted to fifth place with a 9.15, helping her take 10th all-around. Kyra Mayfield grabbed bronze on floor with a 9.2, and Waggoner won the beam.

Diamonds boys gymnastics

The Davis Diamonds boys sent seven athletes to compete at last weekend’s Gold Country Classic gymnastics meet.

Local Peter Conant placed 24th in the Level 6 all-around competition despite being in just his second meet, while teammate Racha Elsbach earned 12th place on the vault. Dante Yasui finished second on vault on his way to 15th all-around and Davis’ Kyle Moeller was 10th on rings and in the all-around.

Diamond gymnast Daniel Bair won the high bar at Level 8 to help him take second all-around.

In the Level 9 division, Davis’ Samuel Resendez took second on the floor and fourth on the high bar to finish seventh all-around, while Patrick Long ended the competition by placing fourth on the floor and fifth in the Level 10 all-around competition.
