The event was a hectic day for Megan who performed in the North West group stages to later secure the 1st place prize in the Northern schools round.
Fortunately, Megan’s hard work, dedication and strict training regime meant that she was successful even though she missed out on her opportunity to warm up due to confusion in the group stages. Rather than the usual half an hour practice, Megan performed to high standard after just one minute to warm up before the judges made their decision and awarded her through to the next round.
The competition was the second leg of the three-stage schools championships and this success means Megan will be going to the National finals in March. Fingers crossed for even greater success in the future!
“I couldn’t be more proud of Megan and her achievement. I went and supported her in the Lancashire School stages and the competition is tough, but I have never seen such a determined and commited individual as Megan. She has practiced her routine over and over since the Lancashire Schools stage alongside 4 hours of training a week. Being crowned Northern Schools Champion just shows how talented she really is and how much her hard work pays off. Good luck in the Nationals Megan”
