Winter Games ahead for Duncan Dynamic

Brooklyn Stobbe qualifies for the second time

Brooklyn Stobbe is going back to the BC Winter Games in February after locking up a spot on the Vancouver Island team when the Duncan Dynamics hosted the Zone 6 gymnastics trials on Dec. 17.

The Duncan gymnast placed first in the JO 8 division, easily earning one of three berths to represent the Island.

Stobbe placed first on beam, second on bars, third on floor and seventh on vault to finish first all-around. The other two spots on the Zone 6 team went to Campbell River gymnasts Hannah Sommer and Ksenia Stansell, who placed second and third all-around, respectively.

Another Duncan Dynamics gymnast, Tahara Brown, placed fourth all-around in JO 8 (second on beam, third on vault, sixth on bars and 12th on floor). She missed third place by 0.1 of a point, but could still be in line for a wildcard berth at the BC Winter Games in Kamloops.

Stobbe won the JO 7 individual all-around silver medal at the 2016 BC Winter Games in Penticton, and also helped Zone 6 take silver in the team competition.

The Dynamics also had three gymnasts in the JO 7 portion of the Island trials. Charcey Erickson placed seventh all-around (first on beam, sixth on vault, 13th on bars, 17th on floor), Khrystyna Yaremyn finished 11th (seventh on beam, eighth on vault, 11th on floor, 12th on bars), and Priya Dhami placed 15th (fourth on beam, eighth on vault, 10th on floor, eighth on bars).
