A team of gymnasts from Spalding High School are coming on leaps and bounds after success at a regional acrobatics competition.

Gemma Amos, Gemma Clark and Rosie Fresen have all qualified for the National Sports Acrobatics Championships being held in Stoke-on-Trent next month after impressing judges at the East Midlands championships in Derby recently.

The three girls were joined in the team from Spalding High School by Sian Matson and Jennifer Platt who were all coached by Jane Moss.

She said: “Sports acrobatics isn’t a discipline we do much of at our school where we specialise more in artistic gymnastics.

“We entered the girls in the competition just for a bit of experience and they did extremely well.

“They’ve been a fantastic group to work with and I’m sure they’ll keep going in the sport.”
