Following their success at The Gryphon Leisure Centre, Sherborne in March six Honiton Community College gymnasts travelled up the motorway to compete at the British Schools Gymnastics finals, writes Christine Baden.

The gymnast are from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and the standard is very high as many of the competitors belong to a gym club.

The South West as a region was very successful throughout the day and Honiton Community College gymnasts played a very big part in that success.

Ashley Wallis was called up as a replacement in the U19 Boys Tumbling. Despite very little time to practice he produced an excellent performance to win the first medal of the day achieving third place.

Over 14 girls’ pair Lauren Davey and Megan Jones missed out on a medal by 0.5 points, leaving them in fourth place whilst Morgan Bolton Williams and Mylissa Jones, who are not members of the Honiton Gym Club, choreographed their own routine and finished in ninth place.

In the Over 14 Boys Pairs, Adam Fullick and Ashley Wallis retained their title of 2013.

Adam was soon back on the floor with Megan Jones in the Over 14 Mixed Pairs, again a stunning performance to win the second Gold medal of the day.

The weekend was not just successful in terms of medals and trophies, it was most enjoyable with teachers, coaches, parents and gymnasts all enjoying the competition, each other’s company and having fun.

Well done, to the gymnasts they did themselves and the College proud.
