SINGLETON'S Gym Matrix representatives returned home from the recent 2019 Gymnastics NSW Country Championships with a handful of medals.

The local sporting organisation sent two teams to the annual event at the Hunter Sports Centre at Glendale on Sunday, July 28, and registered some outstanding results.

"It was an amazing effort by some of our girls," owner/head coach Jen Kendell said.

"With more than 18 teams in this competition, it was a great display of acrobatic holds, tumbling, mini-tramp and floor routines."

Both outfits competed in the intermediate division.

Team Onyx, featuring Tess Hartigan, Amber Smith, Dakota Evans, Jasmine Tickell, Alisha Payne, Dakotah Young and Brianna Tudor, collected silver in the mini-tramp.

They also secured third on the floor and in tumbling, snaring bronze overall.

Meanwhile, Team Geckos - Cheyenne Bonarius, Mia Wilton, Ella Bodium, Armarni Davis, Kayla Rankmore and Sophie Champion - picked up two silvers (mini-tramp and tumbling).

They secured a third on the floor, too, which gave them bronze overall as well.

"The girls will next compete at the Hunter Championships on August 25," Kendell said.

"And, they're hoping to improve even further."
