THERE was medal success for three South Essex girls at two competitions in Bury this spring.

South Essex sent seven gymnasts to a Floor & Vault event on May 15 at Bury Spectrum Gymnastics Club in Suffolk and they took home three medals.

Lois Drummond claimed a gold, Elsie Shepherd silver and Ocean-Raine Ross a bronze.

Lilia Davies, Evie Nicholls, Raiyn Wilkinson and Nancy Fiddes also impressed at the annual competition.

And the following weekend, the same three girls medalled again at a four-piece event at the same venue.

This time Elsie Shepherd and Scarlett Shuttlewood won golds, Lois Drummond and Maggie Smith claimed silvers and Ocean-Raine Ross and Connie Griffith both picked up bronze medals.

Anais Chaproniere, Millie Cofill, Ellie Feagan, Scarlett Ferrington, Olivia Murray and Sophie Tape also represented SEGC at the event.
