Good things come to those who wait…and practice.

After placing second at the Vancouver Island Regional Synchronized Swim meet in Victoria, on April 9, the Campbell River Competitive Synchronized Swim Team brought home  the gold medal for their division at the Jean Peter’s provincial Synchronized Swim Championships held last Friday in Nanaimo.

Team members Breanna Massey,  Raya Jordan, Rachel Enns and  Devon Rogers  competed in  the Figures competition, as well as the team routine.

Their head coach, Leona Hamm, is the  daughter of Jean Peters, who founded the Burnaby Caprice Synchronized swim club, from which the provincial championship gets it’s name. Congratulations to the girls and coach on a season well done!

The club’s recreactional team and  developmental Aqua Giggles   also demonstrated their  skills, along with the competitive team and  guest swimmers from Comox Valley Orcas,  on Mothers Day, completing the season.

The club members will be looking forward to  getting back into the water this September, for a full season now that the Strathcona Gardens  is renovated.

Many thanks to our sponsors, and coaches for a great season.
