Start Of The Season
The girls winter competition season start with the bury teams, where teams of gymnasts have to travel to Bury Spectrum Gymnastics Club in Bury St Edmunds to compete against other teams from around the region.
The first competition for the level 7’s we only had an individual Caitlin Eke, Caitlin was using this competition as a run out for future comps, she had a great competition a good test to see where improvement could be made, but to score 40.30 for a first time out is a great result.
The second competition of the day saw Waveney first team which consisted of Lexi Hammond, Kaitlin Sinden, Mia Patel and Paris Whiting, these girls were competing at level 6 and up against some stiff competition. All the girls worked well as a team supporting each other throughout helping them to achieve a team score of 127.05, a good team score just not quite enough to make a medal position. As this was the first time many of the girls had worked together as a team it was great to see them all working together supporting each other.
The final competition of the day was for the level 3 gymnasts, were Waveney were able to put two teams in. Red team were Taran Pledger and Jenna Delaunay and the blue team made up of Annabel Scarle and Kiera Kane. Again this was a tough competition with 10 teams all competing for the honours of level 3 champions. Both team went round the competition together and atmosphere amongst them was amazing, the red team of Taran and Jenna just pulled ahead of Annabel and Kiera scoring 85.35 to Annabel and Kiera 80.30. Both teams however, did very well putting some new routines together, and with some positive remarks from the judges were able to move onto the next competition.
