Twirlers return home national champions

KITCHENER - The Superstars Baton Club joined approximately 100 athletes from across Canada at the CNBTA national championships July 8 to 10 in Kitchener.  

Mackenzie Ross, of Puslinch Township, joined Bailey Pinder, of Mildmay, in securing a spot on Team Canada during the world trial portion of the competition.

Only the top three athletes in the events are given the chance to represent Canada at the world championships next April in Switzerland.

Pinder was the gold medalist in the junior 2-Baton event and silver medalist in the junior X-Strut event. Ross, 13, was the gold medalist in the preteen rhythmic twirl and preteen 2-Baton, silver in the preteen X-Strut, and bronze in the preteen solo event.

Both are also part of the team that will also be representing Canada in the junior dance twirl division in Switzerland.  

The duet team of Ross and Pinder won its open duet division and placed second at the grand national duet championships.

Madison Ross, 10, of Puslinch, was third in the advance Canadian X-Strut championship, eighth in beginner Canadian solo championship and seventh in the beginner Miss Majorette of Canada pageant.  She was also first in open X-Strut

The girls are coached by Krista DiStasi, of Fergus.
