Helston College gymnastics success

29th January 2018

The Under 13 Girls and the Under 16 Mixed Gymnastics Teams travelled to Bideford at the weekend to compete in the Regional British Schools Milano Teams Gymnastics competition. It was a long day with some very stiff competition from schools across the region, but the Helston College Teams did extremely well.

The Under 13 Girls Team had very stiff competition from 8 teams across the region. The team included Morwenna Holbrook and Scarlett Thompson from year 7 and Ashleigh Price and Kaitlyn Standing from year 8. The team performed neat vaults, clean floor routines and an impressive, classy synchronised floor routine with the second highest score of the day!!

The Under 16 Mixed Team had stiff competition including our friends from Humphry Davy School in Penzance. They just missed out to our South West rivals Pilton in the end. Shannon Standing, Phoebe Jenkin and Cameron Jenkin performed excellent floor routines, strong vaults and a super synchronised routine with a Hip Hop beat!

Both teams have been invited to travel to Stoke on Trent in March for the National Milano Teams Finals.
