Gymnastic Teams Qualify for National Finals
The first weekend of February saw the Stamford Endowed Schools’ host the East Midlands Schools Floor and Vault Championships, with two home teams qualifying for national finals.
As well as being a competition in its own right, it also acts as a qualifier for the National Finals in May, with the winning team from each section going forward to represent the region.
Stamford Endowed Schools entered five teams; U11 Girls A and B teams, U14 Girls, U19 Girls and U19 Mixed, in what was a high standard of competition against 12 visiting schools. Silver medals were awarded to the U11 B team, the U19 Girls team and the U14 Girls team. The final two teams, U11 Girls A and U19 Mixed, were awarded gold team medals and a place in the National finals. Amazing achievements all round.
A special mention must also go to Nicole Doody-Velasquez (U11 Girls) and Lottie Smith (U19 Mixed) who were the top individual scorers in their sections.
