Hertfordshire Grades Competition, February 2015

  • Print

The spring edition of the Hertfordshire Grades competition took place at Marriots in Stevenage on Sunday 15th of February.  Several of SAADI's youngest competitive gymnasts entered the grade 1 competition, representing the club for the first time: Emily, Ella, Tiffany and Sophie. All SAADI gymnasts performed really well, depite being younger than many of their competitors: all passed their grade 1 and enjoyed their first experience of county competition.  Sophie won the trophy for the highest bars score out of all 38 gymnasts competing, from clubs all over Hertfordshire, which is a fantastic achievement.  She also came in 9th place overall for this grade.  Ella and Tiffany received their best scores of 11.8 and 11.65 respectively, on the vault; whereas Emily's best score was 11.9 on the bars.  Well done to all the girls for doing so well in their first county competition, we hope to see them build on their success in years to come.

The HGA 2 competition saw some of SAADI's more experienced gymnasts take to the floor, in a competition that involved 31 gymnasts from clubs across Hertfordshire.  All of the girls passed their grade 2 and gave some very polished and confident performances.  Lilly and Paige were ranked joint 5th overall, with Lilly achieving 4th place on vault and 5th place on bars; whilst Paige came 6th on vault and 8th on bars.  Millie was also high up the overall rankings, coming in 7th place, with impressive 5th and 4th place finishes on vault and bars.  Maizy did particularly well on the beam, achieving the second highest score of the day on that apparatus, and also tied with Millie for 5th place on vault.  Katie did particularly well on bars, coming in 6th place with a score of 12.75, whilst Isabella, SAADI's youngest HGA 2 competitor, had a consistent competition all around, achieving her best score and a respectable 14th place on the vault.  

SAADI would like to say a special thank you to Nicola for being our judge at the competition and to the coaches for supporting the girls in their competition preparation and for taking them around on the day.
