Here is what we have acheived so far this year.....

North West Champions too!

Kerry Gillies   &   Ewa Krzyzanowska 

 

The girls weren't content with just a County title, they continued to tweek parts of their routines, which as a result, enabled them to stand out on a Regional stage and claim well deserved Regional titles and individual apparatus medals.

What a great achievement, well done girls.

But their talent and dedication shone through resulting in medals for them all. Olivia and Amy were in new difficulty levels and Rhea made her 4 piece competitive debut. Kerry and Ewa having just returned from Regionals showed that they were not going to give easy points away.

National Disabilities Championships

Natasha Coates Open Class 2 Womens Senior Champion

Natasha had been working hard on her routines in the gym prior to her competition which showed in her performance at Lilleshall.

Well done Natasha.

  

 

 British Veterans Championships

Emma Frith O18 Intermediate Womens Champion

Kathryn Sissons 018 Novice Trampoline Champion

plus 3rd placed Womens Artistic Team

 

 

 Wow!!!  That is how we describe the performances from our Veterans Dream Team.  Megan Palmer led off the show with a brilliant performance, 2nd Vault & 1st Floor and 4th place overall. Kathryn Sissons then bounced to victory on the trampoline with 2 impressive routines giving her the title of National Champion.  Emma Frith then went on to defend her title in style with 1st place on all 4 pieces and beating her nearest rival by 2.3 resulting in another National Championship title.  Jenny Martin rounded up the event with determination, courage and style. Having injured her elbow in warm up, she showed what a dedicated performer she is by modifying her skills to enable her to perform and achieve 3rd Vault, 1st Bars, 1st Beam & 2nd Floor.  Jenny's apparatus scores put her in 1st place, but after age bonuses had been applied she took 2nd place overall.    

An amazing result from our Veterans Dream Team
