Eight members of Spalding’s Abbey High Fliers were part of the victorious East Midlands regional trampoline squad in the National Regional Team Finals at the Peterborough Arena.

The competition involves the 13 UK regions challenging for the title of team champions and this year East Midlands came out on top by a massive 72-point margin.

Mackenzie Hughes, Chelsea Cooper-Ellis, Samuel Archer and Lucy Robson qualified to be squad reserves.

Olivia Casey, Jessica Ringsell, Alice Banks and Lexi-Marie Kersley competed on the day.

Casey, Ringsell and Banks (all level 5) narrowly missed out on finals spots.

Kersley (level 1) managed a top-six finish which means she now goes on to compete in the UK Individual Finals in July.

As a prize the regional squad members will go to experience a weekend at the National Training Centre in Lilleshall.
