Evie Jumps to the Top!!

Last weekend twelve year old Evie Stokes – Shinn from Hedingham School won the trampolining competition held at the Copper Box in the Olympic Park at Stratford.  This means that she is now the League 2 British National Trampolining Champion.  Evie has also qualified to take part in the National Schools Trampolining competition and has got through the first round and will be representing Hedingham School at the semi- finals which will be held in Cardiff in January 2016.

Evie, who lives in Halstead, commented, ‘I am very happy with my win and I am proud to have my trophy at home.  I am really looking forward to representing the school next month in Cardiff!’  She trains several nights a week after school in Brentwood and also devotes much of her weekend to trampolining practice.  Evie spends a lot of time in the car travelling back and forth to Brentwood to her training sessions, but her success makes the hours of training that she puts in every week all worthwhile.  Hedingham School is very proud of Evie and her achievements so far.
