Haygrove trampolining stars reach national finals
7:30am Wednesday 12th February 2014 in News
HAYGROVE is continuing to produce trampolining stars after five girls from the school progressed to the schools gymnastics association national finals.
Following in the footsteps of ex-Haygrove student and Team GB trampolining star Laura Gallagher, a team of nine from Haygrove travelled to Kent to take part in the southern zonal trampolining final.
Sophie Churchill was first to perform in the U19 novice category where she was awarded third position.
Emily Rossiter and Maisie White secured second and third place places respectively in the U15 novice individual category.
Emily and Maisie were also part of a team that included Megan Kellaway and Chloe Arlow who finished 2nd in the U15 novice team competition.
Sophie and all the girls from the U15 team will be travelling to the national finals in Gateshead in March.
The U13 girls claimed 3rd place in the U13 team event, but unfortunately missed out on a place in the finals as only the top two teams get to progress.
