GYMNASTICS: Four Grantham area primary schools perform brilliantly at county championships

Lincolnshire Primary Schools Gymnastics Championships were held at Queen Elizabeth Grammar School, Horncastle last Sunday.

Local Grantham coaches were supporting gymnasts from four local schools – St Mary’s, St Anne’s, Cliffedale and Harlaxton, as well as a boy from Bluecoat School in Stamford, linked with Inspire+. Everyone performed brilliantly and both individual and team awards were won.

St Mary’s performed consistently to take the under-11 mixed team title ahead of Ingham by 1.4 points, whilst Cliffedale also worked well to take the runners-up spot in both the under-9 and under-11 girls’ groups.

St Anne’s, as first time entrants to this level of competition, finished a creditable fifth out of 13 teams in the under-11 girls’ event.

Individually, there were several high placings from all the gymnasts, but particularly in the under-11 girls’ Level One in which Grantham took the top three positions with St Mary’s and St Anne’s.

Vaulting, as always, was fairly consistent from the Grantham gymnasts, but as a whole their floor work was much improved this year, with a particularly beautiful routine by Ruby Carthew (Cliffedale) who scored one of only a handful of 15s throughout the day.

Individual results: under-9 girls’ level one – 5 Amy Watson (Cliffedale); under-9 boys’ level one – 3 Raj Mistry (Cliffedale); under-11 girls’ level one – 1 Kensie Parsons (St Mary’s), 2 Harriet Johnson (St Anne’s), 3 Lucie Gilbert (St Mary’s; under-11 boys’ level two – 1 Robbie Magan (Bluecoat).
