GRADE 2 NATIONALS
9 February 2008 saw a team of 4 members from Richard’s Trampoline
Club, travel down to Eastleigh for the first Grade 2 Nationals of the
year. It was a massive
competition with over 400 entries, so it was a long day but team spirit
remained high throughout.
Kilday has had good preparation leading up to today, and this showed in
his routines. He produced 2
good routines exactly when it mattered, with just a slight drop in his
difficulty score during his voluntary routine.
This year he’s moved up an age group, so is one of the youngest
in his group. He finished
in 9th place, only just missing out on the finals, so a great
start to the season for him.
Doherty also did very well today. She’s
also moved up an age group this year, so has a new set routine which she
handled well. She will be
looking to improve her difficulty level yet further, to help her gain
the required marks for the National finals.
Cannon started her routines well, showing good form. But somehow managed to lose her form towards the end of both
routines, which showed in her marks.
She’ll be looking to improve upon today’s performance and
also increasing her difficulty level.
Mussino was here today trying to qualify for Grade 1. He didn’t have a very good set routine which set him back
with the required marks. He
improved upon this in his voluntary routine, but the damage was already
done so missed out on the validation score, but did enough to finish in
2nd place within his group.
