BRIDGWATER College's Team BC Trampolining team have had a fantastic start to their year after competing well in the South West Schools and Colleges Trampolining Competition and the Southern Zonals.

Both the under 19 girls novice 'A' and 'B' teams and the boys under 19 novice team won their age groups at the South West Schools and Colleges competition, held in Bristol.

Paige Pople, Carl Ranford and Caleb Staple won their events as individuals, becoming South West Schools and Colleges under 19 champions.

Rosie Allen also came third in the under 19 elite girls' individual competition, allowing all individuals and teams to compete in the Southern Zonals.

The Southern Zonals also proved successful with Paige, Carl and Kieran Dunn finishing second in their events and Caleb Staple coming third.

The girls and boys under 19 novice 'A' teams came first, meaning all qualify to compete in the nationals in March, in Newcastle.

Helen Peregrine-Wheller said: “They beat tough competition at both events and have done me, themselves and Bridgwater College proud. Their success is down to hard work and commitment and I wish them luck for the nationals - very well done to all of you.”
