South West Springboard

Esprit made the short trip to Melksham on Sunday, for the South West Springboard event at the Wiltshire School of Gymnastics.

In the 9/10 year category Esprit showed some very strong performances with Eloise Johnson returning a well deserved Silver medal in the overall competition and an impressive Gold on Vault.

Shannon White, 8th overall, won two fantastic medals, Silver on Bars and Bronze on Vault, whilst Jayne Hughes, 18th overall, won a very impressive Bronze on Bars.

Youngster Tess Armstrong‘s 12th overall was exceptional considering she is only 8 years old and was competing against 9 & 10 year olds.

It was a similar story in the 11/12 year category, where 10 year old Emily Broadfield came a very creditable 10th overall, again against girls much older than her.

Special thanks must also go to coach Gemma, for giving up her day to look after the girls.
