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.
