Gymnasts compete at GISGA Championships
A team of 5 gymnasts from the Stamford Endowed Schools participated in this year’s Girls Independent Schools National Under 9 Championships. The competition was of a very high standard with 15 schools taking part at Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Girls.
The gymnasts competed different routines on floor and vault as well as a group routine, all of which contributed to the overall team score. The SES team finished a very creditable 8th place as a team but after an almost perfect performance of their Group Routine, they were delighted to be awarded 3rd place. They received bronze medals and a 3rd place trophy. This position was very much deserved.
Rachel Harte (8) performed particularly well individually to finish in 5th place out of 75 gymnasts. She received 5th place medal and it was a delight as she stood on the podium as part of the top 6 gymnasts.
