Southeast Grades Qualifiers 2023.


Woking’s MAG squad were out in force at the South East Grades Qualifiers competition held at Pegasus Gymnastics Club. The team featured gymnasts competing in their first ever competition all the way through to those in their final year of grades. Competing externally for the first time, Harlee Jean-Baptiste Shand, Alfie Collins and Aaron Prinsloo gave a good account of themselves in the elite level 0 category. Harlee was the top scorer, finishing in 2nd (56.650), Alfie was third with 53.85 whilst Aaron finished in 5th. Woking had a team of eight gymnasts competing in the level one elite competition. William Brierley was the pick of the gymnasts winning the all-around title with a score of 62.900. Sam Arnold (4th) and Edward Warburton-Gates (6th) will join William representing the South East at National Finals in October. Harvey Holland (7th), Jude Rawlings (8th) and Fabian Higgins (9th) will also be competing at National Finals, making up the Club level 1 team. William Tombs and Joe Roberts showed improvements from last weekends control competition and are reserves for national finals. In the Club level 3 competition, Declan Freeman overcame his fears to compete his tuck back dismount from P-Bars and finished 2nd AA whilst teammate Fionn Kelly took home the AA title with an impressive total of 65.850. They too will compete at national finals where they hope to emulate the success they enjoyed last year. The second round of competition saw William Middleton (Elite level 2), Mac Griffiths (Elite level 3) and Oscar Mitchell (Club level 5) all win silver in their respective categories. Eden Marlow was 5th in club level 4. The club level six competition was a closely fought battle with only 4 out of the 5 gymnasts making the team for national finals. Max Veo-Creek (3rd) and Jay Coote (4th) were pleased that their performances ensured they would be part of the regional team. Finally, Ben Porter won the elite level 6 competition with near perfect performances on both pommels and PPP. In total 15 gymnasts will represent the South East across nine different age categories. This is more than any other club in the region. The success of Woking’s MAG programme was recognised with the awarding of the President’s Trophy. This trophy is presented to a club for performances within the region throughout the year. Scores from the Regional Voluntary and Grade qualifiers competition are added totalled. Woking scored a massive 853.15, over 300 marks ahead of the next club. Congratulations to all gymnasts within the MAG programme who have contributed to this success.
