Boston Gymnastics Academy entered three teams into the Lincolnshire County Team Championships at Spalding Gymnastics Club - and came away with a hat-trick of county champions.

The three teams competed at Level Two, Four and Five.

The Level Two team consisted of Trinity Scott, Ruby-Mae Hardstaff, Tegan Rogers and Clara Dunbavin.

All of the girls competed on each piece (beam, bars, floor and vault).

The top three scores from each piece for the team actually counted towards the final score.

The overall score for Boston was 133.18, which placed them in first position overall, with almost a point difference to the second-placed team.

The Level Four team was made up of Kenzie Burrell, Tallulah Hughes, Katie-Marie Parker, Colby Riley and Tia Robinson.

Not all the girls competed on every piece and, as the top three scores counted, they could effectively pick their favoured disciplines.

The Boston team scored 144.53 overall, which placed them in first position and was almost four whole marks ahead of the second-placed team.

The Level Five team also had five members - Kia Bending-Overton, Millicent Walker, Erin Titchmarsh, Ruby Gillings and Emily Fordred - involved.

The girls managed to finish first out of 10 teams competing, scoring 144.22 overall, which was almost 2.5 marks ahead of the second-placed team.
