Tal­ented U19s qual­ify for na­tional fi­nals

GYM­NAS­TICS

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

BEA­CONS­FIELD High School’s gym­nasts have qual­i­fied for the na­tional fi­nals of a tour­na­ment, rep­re­sent­ing the south­ern re­gion.

This fol­lows their suc­cess at the re­gional com­pe­ti­tion, held at St Mary’s School, in Ger­rards Cross, last week­end.

The U19s man­aged to keep their fo­cus and per­form ex­cep­tion­ally well to win their age group, de­spite their com­pe­ti­tion run­ning over three hours late, and then com­ing up against some stiff com­pe­ti­tion.

The team of Kira Cos­grove, Kaliska Now­ers, Daisy Bar­rows, Anna Croft, Natasha Now­ers and Bron­wyn Ed­wards will now travel to Stoke-on-Trent for the na­tional fi­nals on the May Day Bank Hol­i­day week­end.

Spe­cial men­tion must, how­ever, go to Now­ers, who not only won an in­di­vid­ual award as the high­est scor­ing gym­nast in the U19 com­pe­ti­tion, but was also the high­est scor­ing gym­nast all day, hav­ing achieved a rare max­i­mum score of 16 out of 16 for her floor rou­tine.

Bea­cons­field’s U14s also per­formed very well and worked re­ally hard on both their vault and floor rou­tines, but missed out on third place by 0.2 of a point, in­stead fin­ish­ing fourth.

The team of Rhea Cho­pra, Tara Burke, Sana An­war, Ria Sedani and Erika Si­cad had to be pa­tient and re­silient too as their com­pe­ti­tion ran over by an hour and a half. There was also su­perb sup­port from the watch­ing par­ents.
