Trampoline Queens!

Eight talented trampolinists travelled to Hinckley on Sunday 2nd December to compete in the Regional Trampolining competition.

They had all been working really hard on their routines at the Monday after school club, but larger trampolines and a very big crowd watching, added to their nervousness!

Each girl performed a set routine and a voluntary routine of ten bounces which were scrutinised by four judges before the scores were posted. For all the girls this was their first experience of a trampolining competition at this standard against 60 other competitors so achieving scores in the 7s was superb!

Priya was first to compete for the Year 7/8 team and scored some excellent scores including an 8.2. Millie was next to compete and wowed the judges with her somersault and extremely precise full twist. Esme was the third to compete for Derby High and again achieved scores of 7’s and Evie competently performed her routines to a great standard.

When the results were collated the girls were delighted to be awarded 2nd place overall, a trophy, medals and a place in the zonal round on the 20th January at Hatfield. Star trampolinist Millie was also thrilled to be told that her scores had led to her being crowned the Midlands champion! A fantastic achievement at such a young age!

The Year 9/10 team competed in the afternoon and Anais, Charlotte, Chantal and Hettie all did brilliantly to finish in 13th, 16th, 17th and 20th positions respectively against very tough competition.

Anxious waits for the results ensued until all the competitors had finished, and Derby High were over the moon to finish in overall 2nd place and take another trophy, medals and a ticket to compete in the zonals! Wow!!

Coach Mrs Hancock and Miss Allum were very proud of the girls and Mrs Hancock would also like to give a big thank you to Tilly and Monica who officiated all day on behalf of Derby High.
