The Quebec team, composed of Rémi Aubin, Benjamin Lagacé, Sara-Jade Berthiaume, and Laurence Roux finished the night with a total score of 107.050. In the team format, all four athletes complete but only the top score for the men, and the top score for the women count towards the final score. Aubin and Roux had the top scores for Team Quebec.
“Tonight went really well,” said Roux who captured the silver medal in the individual competition on Monday night. “We knew we could win, but we had to all have good routines. Rémi had a really strong start for Team Quebec, and then when Sara-Jade fell, I felt a lot of stress on myself, but I did what I had to do, and we’re bringing home gold!”
Team Alberta posted a total score of 105.135 with top performances by hometown athletes Zach Blakely and Kalena Soehn, who were joined on the podium with their teammates Nolan Zurek and Alexandra Boucher. Alberta placed fourth in 2015.
Team BC was led by top performances by Gavin Dodd and Maya Bonham, along with their teammates Declan Mclean and Jordyn Yendley, who posted a total score of 102.050.
“This is a really cool event,” said Dodd who had qualified for the individual finals in second place but unfortunately stepped out of his routine in the finals. “I’m really happy with how I did, and how our team did, and I think all of us were really happy with our performances. Our goal was to finish all of our performances and to represent Team BC, so getting a medal is really a great bonus.”
