Peterborough Arena hosted the regional trampolining team finals for national development levels three to six – and five members of Bognor’s Dragonflyers club were among the bronze medal-winning southern region team.

All 13 regions from the UK participated with the East Midlands and West Midlands first and second.

Flyers are proud of the five girls’ performances and look forward to another national finals, where Sofija Kalnicenko will join Anya Johnston.

The top eight in each category make selection for national individual finals at Telford later this summer.

Sofija Kalnicenko, ten, finished fourth, just 0.1 point off bronze and 0.2 off silver in the ten/11 years category with remarkable scores. Flyers have high hopes for her at the finals.

Just missing out on the national finals by 0.3 in ninth place was Rosie Budge, nine.

Alice Chapman’s scores of mid eights gained her 12th position in the 13/14 years while Jenna Cartridge finished in 22nd place.

Eleanor Morton was 15th in the top category of the day, the 13/14-years NDP6.

Flyers are proud of the five girls’ performances and look forward to another national finals, where Sofija Kalnicenko will join Anya Johnston.

Also in the running for finals are Libby Morton and Izzy Hauxwell.
