Grade 2 National Championships & National Synchro Championships

Both of these events took place last weekend in Hull and saw some excellent results for us.

Hannah McCann in just her third Grade 2 competition came 4th out of over 50 competitors in the under-13 group and Kensie Sherlock in just her second grade 2 came 7th out of over 20 finalists in the under-11 group. What might they have done if they had had some experience?

The previous day the synchro championships had taken place and saw Scott Gregory & Matthew Wright win the mens competition to become National Men's Synchro Champions!
