Gymnastics Teams Triumph at Regional Championships
The East Midlands Schools Floor and Vault Championships, hosted by Stamford Junior School on Saturday 31st January, saw four SES teams entered.
The SES under 14 girls, are a relatively new team and gained valuable competition experience from participating, finishing in a commendable 6th place.
The Under 11 Girls have always been a strong team and performed with the flair and expertise that audiences have become accustomed to during the last few years. They finished in 1st place, with a very comfortable margin over their nearest rivals. Individual medals went to Imogen Foster (3rd), Rachel Harte (2nd) and Isabella Plant (1st).
The Under 11 Mixed team contained 4 boys, many of whom had never competed at this level before, and 2 experienced girls. They were determined to do their best and their hard work certainly paid off when they finished 1st in the team event. Individual honours went to Ben Goold (2nd) and Daisy Fox (1st).
The final SES team to compete were the Under 19 Mixed team, who were all relatively young compared to their opposition but they did not let this phase them as they performed brilliantly to win their section. Emilie Morris finished 3rd and Lottie Smith 1st in the individual event.
The three winning SES teams are now looking forward to representing the region at the National Finals in May.
