Athletes from Richard’s in action at Brentwood

Richard’s Trampoline Club attended the Eastern Regional Grading competition in Brentwood for the start of the sport’s competitive season.

The club had a team of six performers, some of whom were attempting to qualify to move up a grade.

At Regional F grade Dan Wills received some good scores from the judges to finish in second place, one position behind club-mate Kasey Kilday as both qualified to move up to Regional E level.

Jo Collins was next up, and was the club’s only competitor in the Regional D grade. Collins finished in fourth place, missing out on a medal by half a point.

In the Regional G category Ella Hemmings finished in the top 20 while Faye Harper finished in 10th place.

Tate Henocq was competing at Regional E for the first time and secured herself sixth place.
