Gymnasts nominated at Birmingham Sports Awards
16 September 2016
Once again, the EHS gymnastics team has been nominated for Junior Team of the Year in the Birmingham Sports Awards 2016.
The Birmingham Sports Awards is held each year to recognise the city's exceptional sporting successes in professional and amateur sport. A short profile of the U18 team, and the other finalists, was published in last night's copy of the Birmingham Mail.
This commendation is well-deserved and follows a year of success for the girls. The team won the West Midlands round of the British Schools Team Championships and then went on to represent the region in the national schools finals. Competing in the Birmingham Schools Friendly competition saw further achievement, with the team being placed first as well as securing a number of medals for outstanding individual performances.
The winner of the Junior Team of the Year award will be announced at a presentation dinner held at Edgbaston Stadium on Thursday 22 September.
Good luck to Holly, Ellie, Ruby, Laura, Hannah and Emily!
