Saturday saw Neve compete in the Advanced 10-11 category. She performed a wonderfully choreographed floor routine which placed 3rd. Neve also performed a strong handspring vault for 1st, which combined gave her 2nd overall, with 16.7, generating a move up to the next level. Maya also competing in advanced category but for 12-14 performed a floor routine to music for the first time and was awarded 4th.  Another strong handspring vault placed her in 3rd, giving her combined scores of 16.2 for 2nd. Bronte also performed a lovely floor routine for the first time, with a small error finished in 9th, but her powerful handspring vault gave her 1st place.

Continuing into the afternoon, Eleanor and Isabella competed in the Bronze category. Isabella narrowly missed out on medals placing 4th on both floor and vault to finish in 4th. Eleanor managed to nab the bronze on floor, and the silver on vault for overall bronze medal and triggering a move up to the next category.

Emily also competed in the bronze category, for the first time, and placed 1st on floor and vault and finished off with the Gold medal too.

Nancy competed in the Silver group, with an outstanding floor routine for 1st and a great vault also for 1st. Her combined score of 16.95 placed 1st. The gold category saw Caitlyn and Betsy compete against each other. Caitlyn beat Betsy to the floor gold, however Betsy beat Caitlyn to the Vault gold. Overall both their scores totalled the same, giving the twins joint 1st overall and coming home with the shield!

Sunday was the turn of the Women’s Artistic competitors. In a large field of modified 5 gymnasts, Daisy competed and placed 16th on both vault and floor, 11th on bars and 6th on beam. Her combined scores meant Daisy finished in 11th.
