Local NEGTC Gymnasts Keep Their Big Successes Coming

The New England Gymnastics Training Center’s teams and talented individual athletes are enjoying an excellent 2016-17 season, and Londonderry gymnasts who compete for the center have been especially impressive at recent competitions.

“Our local gymnasts continue to do awesome and continue to win big against teams in Connecticut, New Hampshire, and New York,” said NEGTC press liaison Daysha Hatfield. “Our Level 3 team became nationally recognized at the Friendship Classic Meet in Connecticut, so right now the NEGTC Level 3 team is ranked sixth in the country for our high all-around score. We’re very proud of all the girls.”

As a matter of fact, the Level 3 contingent has been one of the top all-around scorers in the nation on no less than four occasions. And Londonderry girls made vital contributions to those efforts.

At the “February Flip” event in Trumbull, Ct., near the end of that month, the undefeated Level 3 crew won the meet championship for its level and the NEGTC Level 4 crew ended up being the runner-up in its division. A week earlier, the local center’s Level 6 bunch had snagged an impressive second-place finish at the Winter Challenge Meet in Chelsea Piers, Ct. And while that Connecticut event was going on, the NEGTC Xcel Bronze squad was busy finishing fourth at the Valentine Masquerade Ball at Phantom Gymnastics back here in New Hampshire in Hampstead.

At the February Flip event, the local center’s talented Level 3 bunch made 2017 America’s Top 100 with a team score of 116.675 in placing first overall.

Individually, Londonderry’s Shana Hatfield made the national top 100 with her winning all-around score of 38.425, her uneven bar score of 9.95, and her balance beam routine score of 9.725.

Also making the impressive list was Level 3 stalwart and town resident Addison Doyle for her 9.85 bar score and Level 4 gymnast Olivia Colliton for her bar score of 9.775.

Also at that meet, the local center had Level 3 athletes and locals Skyla Houle and Riley Morgan score perfect tens on their bar routines.

In Level 3 seven-and-under division competition, Londonderry resident Doyle won the floor exercise (score of 9.25) and on balance beam (9.2) and placed second in the all-around (37.475) and on the uneven bars (9.85). She wound up a very solid fourth on vault.

In the Level 3 eight-year-old division, Londonderry’s Shana Hatfield took firsts in the all-around (38.425), on vault (9.4), bars (9.95), beam (9.725), and floor (9.35).

Also in that division, town resident Cailee Anderson snagged second on floor (9.65) and tallied top-15 finishes in the all-around and three other events.

In the Level 3 10-and-up class, Londonderry’s Sophia Beauregard won on vault (9.325), finished second on beam (9.5), snagged thirds in the all-around (37.525) and on floor (9.3), and finished sixth on bars.

In Level 4 competition, 11-and-up competitor Colliton of Londonderry finished third on bars (9.775) and bagged top-10 finishes in the all-around, on vault, on beam, and on floor.

In Level 6 action, town resident Lillian MacDonald excelled in the junior division by going top 10 in all events and the all-around.

In Level 7 senior division competition, Londonderry’s Sophia Fonseca was a top-15 finisher in all events and the all-around. And Xcel Bronze Cherubs’ gymnast and local Riley Doyle notched third places in the all-around (36.525), on beam (9.3), and on floor (9.0) and tallied seventh places on vault and bars.

And in the Xcel Silver Love Bugs class, Eva Sesin of Londonderry snared top-15 finishes in the all-around and on all of the events.

The NEGTC girls are coached by owner Tim Madore along with Melanie Stoller, Justine Turner, Sherry Harper, Mike O’Donnell, and Georgia Doughtery.
