Prescot vault to victory

Prescot Primary School are through to the Merseyside School Games after a slender victory in the Knowsley Key Step Gymnastic Championships following a thrilling afternoon of competition at Kirkby High School.

The gymnasts took part in vault, floor and endurance exercises under the watchful eye of judges from Olympic gymnast Beth Tweddle’s Total Gymnastics Club and the winning margin was less than one point.

13 schools took part in the event with pupils from St Anne’s School – including the incredible Ruby Coleman whose talent was spotted at the corresponding event last year – on hand to give demonstrations throughout.

Organiser Kerstine Hogg, from the Knowsley Schools Sports Partnership, said: “The standard was extremely high, particularly in the girls’ competition, and you can see that the teachers have worked extremely hard to make sure the children know their routines.

“Who knows? We may have just watched the next Beth Tweddle!”
