Regional Grades Competition

The Hertfordshire NDP competition grades took place at Marriots on Sunday and SAADI were represented well by 11 of our competitive gymnasts who all passed their respective grades.  Five SAADI gymnasts took part In the first round, grade 6, which is the first grade gymnasts compete in.  Julia competed in the age 8 category and did really well to pass her grade at such a young age, she will certainly be a superstar of the future.  Hannah and Kate competed in the age 9/10 category and both got good scores, Hannah passed her grade with Distinction scoring over 58 points all around, and came in third place on vault and 5th on beam.  The final two grade 6 gymnasts competed in the 11+ category and as the only competitors in their age group for this grade were also awarded gold and silver medals all around for their performances.  

In the afternoon some of our more experienced gymnasts took to the floor in the competition for the higher grades.  In the grade 5 competition age 12+ Lara and Juliet both did well and passed their grade.  Emma competed in the regional grade 4 competition 11/12 age group and achieved a distinction overall and third place on vault.  Holly, Laura and Lauren competed in regional grade 3, Laura and Lauren took first and second place on vault respectively and Laura also came third on bars and beam.  Holly came first on range and conditioning which is an excellent result showing that she has been working very hard at home on her conditioning.  SAADI's final competitor of the day was Lucy, competing in the very difficult regional grade 2.  Her best results came on floor (first place) and range and conditioning (3rd place), she passed the grade easily, missing out on a distinction by just 0.05 marks, but overall had a great competition.

Well done to all the girls and thanks to the coaches and judges for their vital support.
