SPALDING High School’s under-13 gymnastic team put in a top showing at the national school floor and vault finals.

Having won the East Midlands round, Hannah Lawrence, Jess Jacobs, Lexi Coote, Alice Banks and Gemma Amos secured a fine fourth place for the school at Stoke.

Once again Spalding High were the top state school in the competition – and they also recorded the highest vault scores of the day at national level.

There’s more to come from the young team too. With only one year eight student in the squad, the majority of the girls will be competing in the same age group next year.

Spalding High’s Jane Moss said: “I was very proud of the girls who performed beautifully. It was just nerves at the start of the floor section which cost them a medal.”
