Third provincial title for gymnast Cerrato

Three all around titles won by Surrey Gymnastics Society members

South Surrey resident Treyson Cerrato has captured his third consecutive all around gold medal at the B.C. Gymnastics Championships last weekend at Capilano University in North Vancouver.

Cerrato, 13, competed in the Provincial 5 category and had the best score on parallel bars. He also won a silver medal on pommel horse, rings and high bar, and was fourth on floor and fifth on vault.

One of three all around champions from the Surrey Gymnastics Society (SGS), Cerrato was also the overall gold medalist last year in Kamloops in the Elite 4 category, and in 2013 in Prince George in the Provincial 4 group.

Emanuel Gutierrez Sandoval, 11, won the all around gold in the Elite 3 category, with gold medals on rings and parallel bars, silver on floor and bronze on pommel horse, vault and high bar.

Brady Reeleder of Surrey captured the provincial championship in the Provincial 3 (10-and-under) group. The SGS member had high scores on pommel horse and vault, won silver on rings and high bar, and was fourth on floor and parallel bars. In the same category, teammate Reggie Quintana earned a fourth-place score on high bar and was sixth on vault.

Completing the list of male gymnasts from SGS at the provincials was Timofey Azhogin of Surrey. The 12-year-old won an all around bronze medal after achieving runner-up scores on pommel horse and vault, winning bronze on rings and placing sixth on floor and parallel bars.

A half dozen female gymnasts from SGS were at the B.C. championships, led by fifth-place finishers Alanna Jones and Nicole Czerniakowski.

Czerniakowski, 13, was in the Junior Olympic 6 (JO6) group for athletes born in 2002 and won a silver medal on bars.

Competing in the JO 2000-plus group, 21-year-old Jones had a gold-medal effort on beam, adding a fourth on bars and fifth on vault.

Alexa Cannon, 12, of South Surrey was fifth on vault and sixth on floor in the JO7 2002-03 group, while Maria Bashko, 11, of North Delta was 10th all around with a fifth-place score on vault in the JO7 2004-05 category.

Sixth place scores came from Surrey’s Emily Carroll, 17, on vault in the JO8 1999-plus category and Chenay Wong, 10, of North Delta on bars in JO6 2004-05.
