Three Spalding youngsters represented their schools at the 2015 UK National Schools Trampoline Finals.

This prestigious national event in Birmingham is the culmination of four months of competitions.

Jessica Ringsell, of Spalding Primary School, finished third in the under-11 group.

Samuel Archer, of Monkshouse School, also took bronze in the under-11 age section.

Chelsea Cooper-Ellis, of Sir John Gleed School, was fourth in the under-14 group.

All three train at Abbey High Fliers Trampoline Club in Spalding and joined with their club team-mates at the final East Midlands Regional Qualifying Competition of the year in Loughborough.

Cooper-Ellis achieved the score required to qualify to National Gymnast Level – a feat only matched by one other competitor in the region this year.

In addition to this Abbey High Fliers saw eight of their members qualify to the East Midlands squad for the 2015 National Regional Team Finals at the Peterborough Showground at the end of May – Lexi-Marie Kersley, Ringsell, Olivia Casey, Alice Banks, MacKenzie Hughes, Lucy Robson, Archer and Cooper-Ellis.
