Lincolnshire’s joint county floor & vault champions Lily Thompson (9) and Ruby Vertuccio (10) led their team-mates to another very successful day at the Inter-County Regional Team Championships.

Eight Spalding Gymnastics Club members took part against all the other counties in the region and produced an outstanding result for Lincolnshire.

Spalding was represented in each team of four and in the 8-9 age group the Lincolnshire team won the gold medal with Thompson in great form.

The 10-11 category saw a gold medal for three Spalding gymnasts – Vertuccio, Lucia Kato and Liberty Foden, who was reserve.

The 12-13 age group team saw two more Spalding gymnasts, Grace Mooney and Ellie Keeble, receive gold medals.

The 14-plus category featured two other Spalding gymnasts in Chelsi-lee Parker and Emma Gregory who was unlucky not to get a medal.

Overall Lincolnshire won the regional shield with the highest total score in all age groups.
