Gymnastic teams at Southern Regional Finals

24 February 2020

On Sunday 9 February, The Abbey sent Junior and Senior Gymnastic teams to the Southern Region Finals of the British Schools Floor and Vault Championships.

Hosted by St Mary’s School in Gerrards Cross on behalf of the British Schools Gymnastics Association. The competition gave The Abbey gymnasts a great opportunity to challenge themselves against tough opposition.

The Junior team of Phoebe, Isabella, Emma, Amy, Saffron and Lily did really well in their first major competition to come sixth out of 12 schools in what was a very closely fought competition. All junior gymnasts gave accomplished performances, with Phoebe our highest scoring gymnasts.

Erin, Leah, Lottie, Sophie and Tiggy made up the Senior team, and exceeded all expectations for the day with their stellar performances. The girls worked exceptionally hard and were placed fourth, narrowly missing out on winning the bronze medal by only 0.3 of a mark. The highest scoring senior gymnast for The Abbey was Lottie.

Congratulations to all The Abbey gymnasts on their excellent performances.
