Taylor O’Connor worked hard against the tough competition placing 26th overall, with the floor being her strong point, followed closely by newcomer Jacinta Frizelle in 31st place, whose strength was on the beam.
Young Bridget OstermanRowan and Hayley Gwynne, who have both moved up the ranks in the Mossman club over the years, had their first opportunity to judge at the competition with Bridget also taking on the role of support coach.
