CoPA Success Continues at Beacon Games

Another successful day for CoPA at the combined Beacon Games and Leeds Open competition at Leeds today:

  • Daisy Rushton finished second in the 13-15 age figures category whilst representing England Development (and Preston!) to take a silver medal,
  • Rhea Howard finished 2nd in the 15-18 figures representing Preston in the open category to take a silver medal,
  • Leah Meyer finished 24th out of 60 competitors in the 13-15 figures.  A very pleasing result considering that most of those finishing ahead of her were members of either England Talent or Beacon Squads,
  • Natasha Howard representing Leeds Beacon (and Preston!) finished 16th out of 59 competitors in the 12 and under figures.

Congratulations girls!
