U19 team win gold and progress to national finals.
On Saturday 4th February, three teams from City competed in the Regional Floor and Vault Competition at Streatham and Clapham High School. This was a qualification competition, with each team competing for a place at the National Schools Finals.
Our U14A and U14B teams included girls from Years 5 to 8 and many were competing against teams aged up to four years older. Both teams finished in a respectable 5th position, with Emily (Year 8) finishing in the top 10 individual gymnasts - out of 35 competitors in the U14A category.
The U19 team started with some fantastic vaulting, with all members of the team scoring over 15 (out of a possible 16 points). In the individual placings, Cat finished 2nd, Tabby in 3rd position, Daisy in 4th and Eva in 5th. This meant that the U19A team were awarded the gold trophy.
City of London will now represent the London region at the National Finals in May. This is an outstanding achievement. Well done to all the girls who competed.
