For the second year in a row, North Shore schools swept the podium in the team combined competition at the high school provincial gymnastics championships.
Windsor, Argyle and St. Thomas Aquinas finished first, second and third in the team event held last month at South Delta Secondary. Those results closely mirrored last year’s scores, as Windsor won the 2018 combined team title with STA finishing second and Argyle third. This was the sixth year in a row that a North Shore school has claimed the overall team title.
Windsor also won the girls combined title at this year’s championships with STA finishing third and Argyle fourth. On the boys side North Shore teams took the top four spots with Sutherland claiming the combined title, a first for the Sabres, followed by Argyle, STA, and Windsor.
