More success for gymnastic ‘artists’


FIVE girls from the artistic squad of TJ Gymnastics recently competed in a Level five Team competition in Spalding.

The team, Jasmine Clare, Paige Wallis, Tegan Rogers, Romae Mackintosh and Lucy Fountain, finished a respectable fourth out of 13 teams.

Tegan was first on floor, Lucy second, and Jasmine third on floor and beam.

Two weeks later, on one of the coldest days of the year, six other members of the artistic squad braved the snow and ice to compete in a Level six County Championship also at Spalding.

The girls, aged between seven and 11, competed on bars, beam, floor and vault against nine other teams.

Andrea Barnes brought home the gold medal in the nine years age group; Gracie Chase took bronze in the seven years age group; and Cherida Sohngen the bronze in the 11 years age group.

Andrea also finished fourth overall; Gracie finished sixth over all age groups on floor.
