GRADE 2 NATIONALS
1 March 2008 saw a team from Richardís Trampoline Club attending the
Grade 2 Nationals, down in Bournemouth.
With 3 of them trying to achieve the retaining score for next
year and to qualify for the National finals, and one trying to achieve
the required marks to qualify for Grade 1.
Kilday made a fantastic start with a good set routine, with some good
form marks that left him in 5th place.
He did well in the voluntary routine also and easily gained
enough marks to enable him to stay at this level next year.
He also qualified for the final, and successfully repeated his
voluntary routine. He
dropped down to 8th overall; heíll be looking at improving
his difficulty score for the next competition.
An improvement on his score since the last competition so an
excellent day for Kasey!
Doherty showed great improvement in her set routine, since her last
competition. Sheís upped
her difficulty level in her voluntary routine, which she handled very
well as it didnít affected her form marks.
She also gained the required score to enable her to stay at this
level next year, and improved greatly on her score since the last
finished in 14th place within a very large group.
Cannon also showed good improvement since her last competition.
She completed a confident set routine.
Then when it came to the voluntary routine she improved upon her
scores yet further, leaving her in 22nd place.
She will be working on improving her difficulty score next.
Mussino was trying to qualify for Grade 1 today, but a mistake during
his set routine meant it wasnít going to happen.
He repeated his set routine during the voluntary round and scored
the required marks that he needed in the first round. So at least he knew he could do it, just not when it mattered
though, and this gave him enough marks to finish 7th place
within his group.
