Writhlington student jumps to first place - December 2012

Year 7 student, Corey Walkes, did an excellent job representing Writhlington in the South West regional schools trampolining competition held last weekend by the British Schools Gymnastic Association (B.S.G.A).

Each competitor competes a 'set' routine followed by their own 'voluntary' routine, which can have a maximum tariff or technical difficulty of 7.0.
Corey performed a strong set routine, gaining the only 9s to be awarded in his group. His voluntary routine containing three double somersaults scored him a total of 58.100 and a well-deserved 1st place, a full 5 points ahead of 2nd place. Corey was awarded the South West Regional U13 Elite Boys trophy and a place in the next stage of the competition.

Last year he entered the under 11s Elite age group and won all three rounds to be awarded the British Schools National Elite U11 Boys title. He was awarded his trophy by London Olympics 2012 women’s trampolining competitor, Kat Driscoll. This year, although Corey has moved up an age group and is one of the youngest competitors in the Under 13s, he hopes to give his best perfomances to represent Writhlington with pride in the Southern Zonal Championships to be held again in Bristol on 13th January 2013.

Corey, a long-term member of the high flyers trampoline club in Cheddar commented’ It was really great to win the competition and trophy. I am really excited about getting to the next round’.

Year 10 Jessica White also represented the school in the competition, competing for her first time in the elite level category. There were 32 competitors in her category, 17 were national level. Jessica performed incredibly well and came in an excellent 12th place.
