On Thursday 12 February Unity College students took part in the Burnley Schools Gymnastics Competition. Their performances to say the least were outstanding, which resulted in coming back with a flurry of medals! Within the individual category Ocean Odudu came 2nd with Arianne Limmer 3rd place at Level 1.
Brilliant performances from Lydia Cryer and Emily O’Keefe ensured they came an overall 1st place in the team event!
At Level 2 Claire Hermansen scooped Gold with Willow Bell gaining Bronze and along with excellent performances from Kia Thorley and Charlotte Green the team came in 1st place!
Within Level 3 superb routines from Millie Walsh, Kerris Baron, Hermoine Blythe and Morgan Denney gained them 2nd place in the team event. We were also the only school to enter a student at the highest level of the competition – our exceptional gymnast Rhianna Doogan put on magnificent display of high level gymnastics!
An acrobatics section also took place which requires pairs to perform a routine together combining individual moves with partner balances. Within Level 2 of the competition Unity students picked up Gold and Silver! The winning students were Millie Walsh and Rhianna Doogan with Morgan Denneny and Leah Briercliffe in 2nd place.
Well done to all students who took part in the competition, all their hard work undoubtedly paid off!
