Joined by Kayleigh Benham for their grade three trio with Ellie-Mae and Mia, they scored the highest artistry score of their category, placing them in a brilliant fifth place.

At the CDC competition at Sherborne, Chloe Reyes and Emily Sands completed a great and fun routine in grade one pairs, achieving the fourth highest artistry score in their category.
Jessica Wilford and Emma Rush landed a well-deserved silver medal with their brilliant routine and also achieved the highest technical score in their category, even with it being Emma’s first competition.
Followed by teammates in the same category, Daisy Hooper and Amalie Moore were placed fifth with a well-rehearsed routine and third highest artistry in the category. It was also Amelie’s first competition with Splitz.
Last of the day, the club had two trio’s competing against each other in the same category. Isabelle Newberry, Leah Whitefield and Abigail Page scored the second highest technical score of the category and achieved fifth place, followed by Jessica Wilford, Freya Grafton and Emma Rush in sixth place, who achieved the highest artistry score of the whole category.
