We had 3 competitors in this competition: Molly Kirkham, Ivy Kurtis and Indiana Passlow. The girls were selected to represent the Northern Region based on their qualification scores at the Northern Region Qualifier and were randomly selected onto a team with 9 teams of 5 being selected.

She had excellent results on all 4 apparatus with 9.566 on Floor, 9.500 on bars, 9.488 on beam and 9.066 on Vault which saw her receive 2 blues and 2 reds (one of which was only 0.22 off another blue) earning her a gold award overall and first out of all competitors in session 3. her team placed 4th overall and 1st on bars in a very close session with an overall team score of 110.245.
Molly was selected onto Northern Region team 4 and competed in session 3A on Saturday. She received all red ribbons overall which means all of her scores were over a 9.0 overall earning her a gold award! Molly’s team placed second overall including 1st on bars and 3rd on beam with an overall team score of 109.780.
Ivy was selected onto Northern Region team 7 and competed on Sunday in session 5B. She received green ribbons on the Vault, Bars and Floor and a Yellow ribbon on the beam, earning herself a silver award overall. Her team placed 2nd overall including 1st on beam and 2nd on vault and bars with an overall team score of 109.780 (which funnily enough is the same as Molly’s team overall).
Congratulations girls on a wonderful competition season, we cannot wait to start learning new skills and working towards 2020!
