two excellent weekends in a row for our Trampolining & Gymnastics Teams
The last two weekends have proved to be very successful for our Gymnastic and Trampolining teams.
On Saturday 4 February, the trampolinists had an excellent day at the North of England Trampolining Championships in Wigan, where they won both U19 intermediates and novice categories with our B team coming second. Individually Teresa Willis was placed 3rd.
The future also looks bright for the U14 team who became North Team Champions lead by Sephora Ford who won the individual title. In the elite competition Sophie Akhavan–Hezaveh, School Trampolining champion, was placed 3rd in U19 elite and also qualifies for the National Finals in Newcastle on 18 March. The U19 Novice Champions and Runners up were Emily Wyman, Anna Eason, Jessica Wright, Teresa Willis, Daisy Stuart-Turner, Olivia Cooke, Eliza Yellops, and Jessica Holtum. The U19 Intermediates Champions were Pippa Kelly, Rebecca Stoakley, Scarlett Miskin and Lucy Buchanan. The U14 team consisted of Sephora Ford, Lily Godbole, Lydia Campbell and Jessica Mowthorpe.
The previous Saturday, we hosted the Yorkshire and Humberside Regional Milano Gymnastics Competition, opening our doors and excellent gymnastics facilities to over 150 gymnasts from 14 schools in the county. All of our gymnasts performed with poise and polish, with the U19 Team of Lucy Buchanan, Tiegan Walker and Emily Wyman, led by School Gym Captain Pippa Kelly winning their competition and qualifying to the National Finals. Our U16 team of Orla Drake, Orla Baker, Sephora Ford and Emilia Boneham-Hoare, also medalled and qualified.
Well done too to our two U11 teams who in their first competition were placed in the top half of the very competitive primary competition, where 12 teams were competing. Some of our Junior School gymnasts had only 48 hours’ rest before they were competing at the Sheffield stage of the South Yorkshire Games at the English Institute of Sport yesterday.
Fifty-three girls from Junior School in Year 3 - Year 6 competed, and our seniors were asked to judge at the competition on account of the school’s reputation for excellence in the sport.
