Hereford Dynamix have returned with another clutch of titles from the West Midlands Closed Age Trampoline and DMT Championships at Erdington.
The city club proved that they can line up with the region's best with champions in three individual trampoline and double mini trampoline categories.
Eight-year-old Emily Potter, aged 8, was jumping for joy after gaining the title of U9 West Midlands Trampoline Champion.
She soared into first place with two solid performances which gave her a total score a whole mark above the rest of her age group.
Emily's success sees her follow in the footsteps of Liberty Jones, who won the same title last year.
This year Liberty competed in the U11’s category narrowly missing third place by 0.1.
Anna Inglis has become the West Midlands O15 DMT champion with Lizzy Harding the West Midlands U15’s DMT champion.
"The girls have not been training in double mini trampoline for long with this being a new discipline to the club, however they have really excelled in this area both taking gold in their age categories," said head coach Sam Board.
"Double-Mini Trampoline is a fast and exciting rebound discipline consisting of a run-up, a skill on the apparatus and a dismount on to a landing area."
Other podium finishes for the club were Jemma Morgan, second in the U15 DMT, and Megan Corrick third in the U15 DMT.
Lizzy Harding, Jemma Morgan, Megan Corrick and Catherine Sheridan were first in the DMT team event while Liam Cotterrell was second in the U15s Boys' DMT.
