The Scottish National Championships 2018 were held at Bells Sports Centre, Perth on Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th September. It was a fantastic -but long weekend – full of great results!
The morning on Saturday started bright and early with our NDP1 trampoline gymnasts starting at 8.50am with Izzy Towers completing two nice routines and coming 9th in a very competitive category!
Next up was NDP2 on trampoline, with Amelia Lawson & Emma Forrest securing 3rd & 4th place respectively, as well as NDP5 on DMT, with Taylor Robertson completing four clean passes to place 2nd & win a silver medal!
The success on DMT continued with Olivia Purves placing 3rd in NDP6 13-14 female category, Katie Brown winning a bronze medal in the NDP6 15-16 female, and Leona Scott completing 4 beautiful passes to win 1st place, becoming Scottish Champion for NDP6 17+ female!
Back on trampoline after a short lunch break, we had NDP4 category with 3 CETC gymnasts, Kirsty Beaton, Ellie McDonaugh and Olivia Purves in the 13+ age group gaining 4th, 5th & 7th place respectively. Great job for a very tough group of nearly 20 gymnasts!
The day finished with all FIG gymnasts on DMT, where CETC had 3 competitors, Kelly Wynne, Ava Harvey & Madeline Smith placing 1st, 2nd & 3rd respectively, with Kelly becoming FIG 13-14 Scottish Champion! Unfortunately due to injury, our Senior FIG DMT gymnast Caitlin O’Brien was unable to compete, but she came along to coach- & also had a try at commentating!

Day 2 also saw a host of medals & great successes!

The day started with NDP5 gymnasts competing on trampoline, where Kelly Wynne placed 3rd in the 13-14 women’s category, gaining a bronze medal! Leona Scott also earned a bronze medal in the 15+ category, with Katie Brown & Taylor Robertson placing 5th & 6th in the same category.
Over on DMT, we had 4 competitors in NDP1 with Erin & Izzy Towers achieving 6th & 7th places in the 11-12 women’s category. Faith Jowett placing 8th in the 13+ age group, and Gail McDonald earning 4th place in women’s 9-10. Next up was NDP3 where CETC won two gold medals! Aaron Loftus becoming Scottish Champion in 13+ men, & Leah Borthwick also becoming Scottish Champion in 13+ women!
Back on trampoline after lunch, NDP6 women were competing – Ava Harvey, our last trampoline competitor of the day, earned a bronze medal in the 13-14 age group.
To finish on DMT, CETC had two gymnasts in the NDP2  13+ women’s category, where Poppy Hughes placed 4th & Emily Gooch 9th.

Fantastic (although VERY long day) at the final Scottish Nationals Qualification event of 2018.
Excellent performances from CETC gymnasts, with many of our 71 TRA & DMT entries competing at Perth for the very first time!!!
The morning started off with all our junior FIG DMT gymnasts, a first competition for some, competing at this level!! It was brilliant to see a full CETC podium when Ava Harvey (3rd) Madeline Smith(2nd) and Kelly Wynne (1st) won FIG 13-14 Woman category!
Our youngest CETC competitor of the day, Archie Lawson, completed all routines and passes in TRA & DMT - at his first competition! Brilliant Archie!
Lauren Millar competed in NDP Performance 19+ ladies - her first time competing this year! She completed 3 lovely routines, narrowly missing the Nationals qualifying score.

MASSIVE WELL DONE to everyone!

CETC attended the second British Spring Series of 2018, held in Sheffield on 1st and June 2018. This was the final qualification event to gain the scores and placings for FIG British Championships 2018, which will be held in Birmingham this September!
Madeline Smith and Ava Harvey both competed in 13-14 FIG DMT ladies’ category. Ava finished 10th with a score of 119.800, managing to gain the qualification score for British Championships. Madeline finished in 13th place with a score of 118.300 - just missing the score for British in this event. However, Madeline had already managed to achieve the score in Spring Series 1!

Madeline and Ava also competed trampoline in NDP Performance 13-14 girls. They both completed 3 very nice routines at this event, finishing 12th (Madeline) and 13th (Ava). Unfortunately, both girls needed to finish in top 8 position to qualify for NDP finals in July.

Caitlin O’Brien, competing for FIG Senior Ladies, gave a brilliant performance, completing 4 amazing passes – one being brand new that she even finished with a stuck landing!! Caitlin finished 2nd place at this event, beating her last placing at Spring series 1.

All 3 Girls have qualified for this year’s British Championships in September, which is amazing!
CETC are very proud of you all!!
