Tram­po­line club brings home gold

CHB Mail - - Gardening in CHB -

The awe­some four­some from Ric­o­chet Tram­po­line Club in Waipuku­rau re­turned from their first Tram­po­line Na­tion­als in Tau­ranga with suc­cess and all much richer for the ex­pe­ri­ence.

Com­pet­ing as part of the Hawke’s Bay Poverty Bay team, Lachie struck gold and an NZ ti­tle in the 13-14yr Men’s Tum­bling, and Har­vey with sil­ver in the 11-12yr Men’s Tum­bling. Broth­ers Lachie and Ke­gan came fourth in 13-14yr Men’s Syn­chro­nised Tram­po­line, and Lachie came fourth in Sub-Ju­nior Men’s Dou­ble Mini Tram­po­line.

Hun­tar was un­lucky to miss mak­ing it to fi­nals in his age group by one plac­ing, which is still a ma­jor achieve­ment, go­ing by the large num­ber of com­peti­tors in his group.

Ke­gan and Har­vey were also well equipped to make it to fi­nals in their re­spec­tive dis­ci­plines, but un­for­tu­nately a few er­rors pre­vented this from hap­pen­ing.

The four boys, all in their first year, are re­cent con­verts to the sport of tram­po­line and tum­bling, and it is both a tes­ta­ment to their own hard work, as it is to their coach Wayne Marsh, with his ded­i­ca­tion, pos­i­tive and pa­tient work with his young charges.

The boys them­selves have been hum­bled by the sup­port of our lo­cal com­mu­nity and would like to thank all for the sup­port, whether buy­ing raf­fle tick­ets, con­sum­ing sausages siz­zles or sim­ple well wishes, all giv­ing the boys added in­cen­tive to per­form well.
