WWE’s West Country League teams all performed well in the final match on Saturday and Sunday 22nd and 23rd November to finish with good results once again. The A Team of Chloe Johnston (Captain), Edie Bessant, Jessica Richardson, Ashleigh Bygrave, Evie Coles and Alexa Evans achieved Silver in the match and Gold overall for the year. Jessica and Ashleigh also performed new moves on the bars and beam. They and Chloe used the competition as an opportunity to practice some of the skills they will need to compete at Elite Grades next April. It was also great to see the return of Molly Greatwood to collect her reward for her efforts in the team earlier in the year.
The B Team have had a difficult year, with WWE only fielding 2 gymnasts in the team for the first match in May, missing out on 2nd place in the second match by 0.2, Georgia Smith being taken up with her Rhythmic commitments to Team Bath and having a late withdrawal at the last minute for the third match. The team, consisting of Catherine Hall (Captain), Georgia Smith, Georgia Gilling, Hannah Carroll, Phoebe Bygrave and Jessica Tait gave great performances at this last match, especially on beam and floor where they smiled their way through excellent routines and achieved third place in the match. Although only placing 4th overall for the year they have shown great effort and team spirit and are a credit to the club. Onwards and upwards next year girls!
Our C Team, consisting of Rhianna Steele (Captain), Leilah Antram, Sophie Johnston, Molly Howarth, Hayleigh Freestone, Lauren Scott and Jessica Hennessey have once again won their league, achieving 19 points and outscoring the other 2 teams in the division. Great thanks should go to Jess Hennessey for her commitment to the team, having left for University earlier in the Autumn and returning twice to compete for the team with very little practice! Jess has now retired, along with Rhianna and Leilah. They have all been great ambassadors for the Club and will be missed in the team!
The results will be available on the Results Page very soon.
