The girls from Belmont Castle Academy become Essex Champions for 2019

IT was another very proud moment for Belmont Castle as the girls gymnastic team were crowned’Essex Champions’ coming first in this year’s County Finals.

Held at Chelmsford Gymnastics Club the team fought off some very stiff opposition from ten other schools who had also reached the finals.

It was a nailbiting finish with only 0.3 points separating the top two schools. Headteacher, Mark Jones, speaking about how well the children had done said that he was over the moon and couldn’t be more prouder of all the girls who had all put in stunning performances.

This was not the first year that BCA had reached the finals of this competition, but the previous best was coming second and missing out on the top slot by the slimmest of margins.

The girls will be hoping to repeat this success at the Key Steps competition in May.
