Hull Gala Weekend

A mixed weekend for our grade 1 & 2 bouncers but, on balance, some excellent results.

With grade 1's bouncing on the Saturday, Scott Gregory withdrew from the individual competition to rest an ankle strain although competed with Stephen Williams of Liverpool in the Men's Synchro. The pair performed stunningly with desynch scores consistently in high 9's and victory over the next pair by a good margin. Natasha Holme put her recent run of poor form behind her to final in the under-17 group, finishing in 5th place with a National Finals qualification; Gemma Phillips finished 5 places behind 'Tash securing FIG B qualification for next season but narrowly missed Nationals qualification. Stephen Page also competed but, unusually for him, managed to not complete either set or voluntary routine.

Sunday saw just two of our grade 2 competitors in action with Kensie Sherlock running out a clear winner in the under-11 group and Hannah McCann running away with the under-13 group 2 points clear of the 2nd placed girl. Both girls also easily qualified to National Finals and National C competition next season.

Jack Petchey - February Winner

Abbie-Jo Goldsmith is clearly a very determined individual and her commitment and consistent efforts to improve have stood out for some time now. If she carries this through in her other pursuits Abbie-Jo will undoubtedly be very successful in her life!

Jack Petchey - January Winner

Not one of our most advanced trampolinists, but an increasingly confident and capable Assistant Coach - Catherine ('Cat') Zalicks was a deserving winner of our first award in 2008. Cat has impressed the coaching staff with her assured manner and analysis - the kids she coaches seem to like her as well!
