In the Twisters competition (for Novice and Club Level 1-3 gymnasts), the team of Sophia Gardiner, Teresa Sell and Natalie Brewer won Gold medals. All three gymnasts also took top placings individually with Sophia winning Gold, Teresa winning Silver and Natalie taking Bronze.
In the Flyers competition (for Novice gymnasts), the team of Imogen Herbert, Charlotte Sancto-Jones and Bethany Smith won Silver medals. Their individual placings were Imogen 4th, Charlotte 5th and Bethany 6th.
A huge “thank you!” to coaches Kate Heard and Claire Wiggin for all their expertise and the time they have put into coaching the girls.
