TEAMS from Sleights, Fylingdales, Lythe, Egton, Castleton, Stakesby, East Whitby and West Cliff took part in the years five and six gymnastics competition held at Caedmon School.

Teams battled it out competing in body management, floor and vault categories.

A group of experienced gymnast sport leaders from Caedmon were on hand to make sure the event ran smoothly by coaching and judging the teams in each discipline.

The schools were split into two groups, one group participating on the Wednesday with the other group on the Thursday.

Wednesday’s competition resulted in a third place for Lythe, second for Sleights and first place going to Fylingdales.

Individually, Fylingdales’ Jenna came first, Lythes’ Molly Spenceley game second and again Fylingdales’ Sophie came third.

Thursday saw Stakesby take third place, Egton were in second. In joint first place with the highest scores of the whole competition were East Whitby and West Cliff. All the individual places went to East Whitby; Faith getting third place, joint second being Abbie and Naomi and in first place was Ashleigh.

Organiser Caroline Watson would like to express a big well done to all the children who took part and to the Caedmon Leaders who did an excellent job.
