600 at schools gymnastics - full results

17:37 12 March 2013

Nearly 600 young gymnasts competed in the North Devon Schools’ Gymnastics Competition hosted by Falcons Gymnastics Academy in partnership with Kingsley School.

Shebbear College Junior School entered for the first time and took away many medals in the junior novice events. Bude Juniors also won a host of novice titles.

In the Intermediate section Sticklepath dominated the girls’ events with Newport’s strengths showing in the boys and mixed groups. Kingsley School, Bradworthy and St. Margaret’s each found the top of the podium at least once.


Newport’s Daniel Mock took the award for Most Promising Gymnast as he won the individual U9 event and had the highest scores of the day on both the floor and the vault. Keeping it in the family, Daniel’s younger brother Charlie took gold in the U7s.

The top intermediate girls were very close. Flynn Rostock (Sticklepath) just edged out Sophie Lethaby (Combe Martin), while Millie Ayres (St. Margaret’s) pipped Lauren Taylor (Appledore), less than 0.1 separating these pairs.

Tace Dunford (Swimbridge) topped the rankings in the U7s.

William Bennett (Hatherleigh) and Josh Parry (Bradworthy) were the top boys in the Intermediate and Novice U11s respectively.

The East Smiley trophy was won by Kingsley School’s Jessica Barker, who entertained the judges throughout.

Honours were spread between the schools in the senior events on Sunday.

Holsworthy won the first title, the U13 Girls Novice team and also took the U15 girls trophy.

St. Peter’s and Ilfracombe were successful in the U13 Boys and Mixed events, with Pathfield climbing to the top in the U15 and U19 Mixed categories.

Kingsley School won two Intermediate Girls titles, retaining the U19 girls for the fifth consecutive year. Bideford and Ilfracombe were the best U15 and U13 Mixed teams. Park School won the U13 Boys and two further sections with their U19 Mixed gaining the top team score of the weekend.


Ryan Owen (Park) won the U19 Boys individual title and scored the highest mark on both the floor and vault and the highest total of the weekend - 19.60 out of a maximum of 20.

Sophie Johns (Kingsley), Adam Tobin, Katie Beagley (Park) also scored more than 19 and won individual gold medals.

Kingsley’s Sarah Foxton and Bideford’s Joe Taylor-Richards topped the podium in the Intermediate U13 Girls and U15 Boys respectively.

In the Novice Seniors, Ross Swailes just passed his Pilton team-mate to take the U13 Boys title. Holsworthy’s Amy Wallace and Grace Mitchell won gold and Karl Dalton, Jessica Loach and Adam Manfield from Pathfield were also successful.

The Laycock Endeaour Award was jointly won by Erin McDonald (Sticklepath) and Emily Woods (Park) who have both overcome difficulties to be able to compete.

Alison Mower (Bideford) and Sophie Jeffery (Park) were recognised for their efforts over the many years both at their school clubs and what they give to the sport.
