Irish National Team Championships 2012

Well done to the team from Old Bawn who placed 5th at yesterdays Irish National Team Championships.  The team had some ups and downs throughout the day, however, there were many positives to come away with.  On bars we had lots of new skills with Ciara performing a Shoot-over from high to low bar, Katie performing her giant and Julie getting her cast to handstand.  Similarly on beam Lauren performed a flip layout and Julie performed tuck back somersault and straight front somersault dismount.  On floor Katie performed straight front somersault and full twisting back somersault to achieve the 3rd highest score in the minor competition on floor. Other notable performances were Julie and Ciara’s stuck beam routines and Shauna’s fabulous and clean bar routine.

This competition is also a qualifier for the National All Around and National Apparatus finals.  We are delighted to say that the girls qualified to the following finals:

Shauna Kelly – Bars, Vault and All Around
Katie O’Hara – Floor, Vault and All Around
Lauren Reddy – Bars, All Around
Ciara Nixon – Vault and All Around
Julie Sadlier – Vault and All Around
Beth Gillmor – Floor

Well done girls, we’re very proud of you and the progress you are making!!
