East Kilbride News - - NEWS - Ni­cola Find­lay

A third year Calder­glen High pupil fin­ished with two per­sonal best scores at a Bri­tish com­pe­ti­tion re­cently.

Katy An­drews com­peted in the FIG Bri­tish Gym­nas­tics cham­pi­onship at Stoke on Trent.

Katy and her part­ner Holly Dougan, from Holy Cross High School in Hamil­ton, fin­ished with not one but two per­sonal best scores in both their bal­ance and dy­namic rou­tines.

This dis­play placed them over­all 12th in Bri­tain for their dis­ci­plines – which is a fan­tas­tic achieve­ment at such a high level of com­pe­ti­tion.

Coach and PE teacher, Sarah Mar­shall, said: “I could not be prouder of the two girls.

“The girls ex­ceeded all ex­pec­ta­tions in­clud­ing their own, with two lovely, clean dis­plays.

“This was an amaz­ing per­for­mance for their very first FIG Bri­tish Cham­pi­onships. Well done girls.”

Next, the girls have their sights on fin­ish­ing the rest of the sea­son suc­cess­fully with their club, Hamil­ton Gym­nas­tics.

They now have their sights set on plac­ing as high as pos­si­ble in their events to qual­ify for other Bri­tish and Euro­pean com­pe­ti­tions.
