Orbit’s preparations for the National Championships in July continued with success at a regional competition at the weekend.

As well as competing for individual places and trophies, trampolinists were aiming to ‘upgrade’ by attaining high enough scores from the judges.

Georgia Makel finished the U15 E grade in 8th place, while in the O15 girls E grade, Lucy Pangbourne finished 13th and Ritchie Clarke 5th.

In the large girls F group, Daniella Toomey finished in 10th, while Jayde Latimer was 21st, and at U13 G grade, Millie Cole was 22nd.

At U11 G, Rachel Marsh was a steady 13th, but stable-mate Millie Heathcote showed the rest of the field a clean pair of heels with two great routines to clinch 1st place and secure promotion up to grade F

In the O15 girls G, Kathryn Marsh produced a couple of flair filled routines to win her age group title and earn promotion up to F, and at D grade Ciara O’Brien proved the star of the U17 show as she took 1st place and promotion up to C grade.
