Two great routines at today’s National Schools Finals in Macclesfield saw Issie awarded the first place cup in the Years 7-9 Elite section. What a star! Clubmate Maisie was 12th in the individual event and school friend Maggie was 11th.
Together the three from The Coopers Company and Coburn School also won the Team Trophy and were presented with medals.
With hopes of a full competition year ahead, 29 of our members visited Harlow Leisure Zone on Sunday 6th February. Of these a significant number had not competed before. Without exception they all worked hard and many came away with rewards to prove it. Almost all of them qualified to June’s Regional Finals at Cambridge, 9 came away with medals.
Brentwood TC hosted the season’s third Regional NDP competition on Sunday 17th February. The day ran very smoothly; thanks to organisers and the many members and friends who helped set up, set down, officiated, coached or ran fundraising stalls.
On the trampolines our gymnasts performed very well indeed, with Connie, Louis, Maisie, Jennifer and Kate all winning. Tilly ran Kate incredibly close, just 0.05 marks separating them as they took gold and silver. Hannah, Jessica and Tommy also mounted the podium in second place and Rosie was awarded a bronze.
Gillingham hosted the first of two English Championships Qualifiers last weekend and four Brentwood TC girls jumped in the toughest, Gold category. The standard was very high and Lilia Kearney in the 11-12 age group and Ashleigh Doyle, Georgie Tyrrell and Jennifer Liu in the 17-21 section all did well to finish in the middle of their respective fields.
After hosting a successful, Brentwood Open competition the previous weekend, attended by over 300 gymnasts from around the region, several of Brentwood Trampoline Club’s more experienced members journeyed to Stratford’s Olympic Park. The Lee Valley VeloPark made a splendid venue for the 2017 Trampoline League Finals and BTC’s gymnasts enjoyed a Super Saturday.
