Gym Team Crowned Floor and Vault Champions
Stamford Junior School hosted the East Midlands Schools Floor and Vault Competition on 29th January. As well as being the Regional Championships, the event was a qualifier for the National Finals in May, with the winning team from each category going forward to represent the region.
The Stamford Endowed Schools entered five teams, all of which had trained hard and prepared well. Both the U13 and U19 girls’ teams finished third, receiving the bronze medal in their respective age groups. The U11 mixed team, consisting of two boys and three girls, came second, narrowly missing first place.
Stamford Junior School entered two teams in the U11 girls’ event. The B team finished second, which was a real achievement considering that three of the team were in Year 3. The A team were outstanding and dominated their category and were crowned East Midlands Floor and Vault Champions for 2011.
Coach Trudy Smith said “They now look forward to the National Finals in May. It is a very promising team and as all of them are U10, we hold great hopes for next year!”
