Level 4&5 Teams Competition

The county level 4 and 5 teams competition took place on Sunday October 20th and SAADI entered two teams of four gymnasts, one at each level.  The girls performed well at the competition and were a real asset to the club.  The team competition format allows four gymnasts to compete on each of the four pieces of apparatus: vault, bars, beam and floor, with the top three scores on each piece counting towards the team total.  Every member of each of the SAADI teams contributed a score that counted towards the team total one at least one apparatus, showing that every gymnast really was valuable.  All girls competed well, holding their nerve and matching the performances they are capable of doing in training for almost every routine, which is what they are striving to achieve.

The members of the level 4 team were Olivia, Lucy, Megan and Louise.  The team finished the competition with a score of 134.25 securing them seventh place.  Olivia secured SAADI's highest scores on Vault (11.5), Bars (11.3) and Floor (11.95); Lucy equalled Olivia's high Vault score and also achieved the team's highest beam score (10.8) and overall all-around score (44.7). Louise had a very good competition, providing the second highest scores for the team on Vault, Beam and Floor and finishing a very close 0.2 behind Lucy in the all-around.  Megan had a very consistent competition producing good scores across all apparatus, including a steady beam routine for 10.3 which was crucial for the team score.

SAADI's level 5 team of Laura, Anina, Lauren and Juliet also did really well, finishing the competition with a score of 125.25 and fourth place.  Laura achieved the highest all-around score for SAADI (41.6) and the highest vault score (11.15).  Lauren Contributed the team's best Bars and Beam scores, achieving 9.55 and 10.55 on those pieces.  Anina produced a very elegant performance for the highest SAADI floor score of the day (11.0) and also produced the second highest vault and bars scores.  Juliet produced excellent beam and floor performances, producing the second highest scores on these apparatus, and tied with Lauren for the second highest all-around score within the team.

Newly qualified SAADI judge Nicola Fuller was judging at this competition, her first since qualifying as a judge in September.  SAADI would like to congratulate her on this accomplishment and thank her for her work at this competition, without judges it would not be possible to hold competitions.  We are also very grateful to the coaches who have worked with these girls recently: Annie Fuller, Penny Collins and Nicola Fuller, whose hard work has shown in the performance and excellent conduct of their gymnasts.

Congratulations to all the gymnasts who took part in the competition, and thank you for representing SAADI in such a professional manner.
