Woking was entered in the level 4, 3 and 2 categories with girls competing both in and out of age.
Anna, Chloe and Danielle competed in the level 4 competition. The girls all performed well and gained some valuable competition experience in readiness for the regional finals in September. Danielle was 9th overall in the in-age competition and awarded a very well deserved 5th place for her lovely beam routine. Anna also performed a lovely, clean beam routine to give her 5th position in the out of age competition. Chloe performed a nice, clean routine on bars to give her 6th position in the out of age competition.
The level 3 category saw a total of 30 competitors taking part (10 in-age / 20 out), including 5 girls from Woking – Sophie Miller (out), Paige Hewitt (out), Natasha Brewer (out), Zadesha Thobias (in) and Rachel Cordell (in). All the girls performed well and got the opportunity to practice some of their new skills and build on these after Horsham in preparation for the regional and national finals later on in the year. Competition was strong both in and out of age, with a couple of National Squad girls taking part. Rachel performed exceptionally well in her routines including a 13.5 score on beam, resulting in 2 Silver medals and a Bronze in the All-Around competition. Zadesha had a good solid performance particularly on the Vault resulting in 5th position. Sophie deserved a special bravery award for a nasty fall on Beam, after which she popped back on and completed one of the hardest routines of the day without a second thought – a true sportswoman! Natasha also performed well, finishing 5th on Bars. Paige only competed on 2 apparatus due to injury but still finished 6th on beam!
Amber Stevens competed in the level 2 in-age category. She performed all her routines exceptionally well and showed a high level of difficulty particularly on the beam, executing her new double back off bars with great success! Amber’s scores were high and well deserved, so it was no surprise that she collected Gold medals in each of the apparatus, resulting in Gold in the All-Around competition! Well done Amber, fantastic work and great preparation going forward to the level 2 finals in November.
Another good day for Woking – well done girls!!
