The U15 teams were dominant in the relays and combined with some super individual performances came away with second place in the U15A competition and 1st place in the U15B competition.

The U13s didn’t want to be left out and they too performed strongly with many individual  wins and as a result their B team squad also came in 1st place.

Trampolining

Sunday was the first round of the National Schools Trampoline Championships. We entered two novice teams and had two performers in the elite category.

The year 7-8 novice team started off the day and for two of them, it was their first ever trampoline competition. They placed first overall as a team and Alice B (4) won the individual competition.

 

      

 

The two competitors in the elite categories were up next, with nearly every move a somersault. They really have led the way in showing the novice teams what they can aspire to. Amelia S (U4) won the Elite year 7-9 category.

 

                

 

The novice year 9-10 team were up last and had hard acts to follow. They kept their nerve and performed brilliantly, gaining the team 2nd place, with Louisa H (U4) placing second individually and Claudia M (U4) 3rd.

 

      

 

As a result both teams have qualified for the zonals, with Alice, Louisa, Claudia and Amelia qualifiying as individuals as well.
