Aquasonics to Nationals

Representing Abbotsford is Alanna Stobbe, Aldergrove is Amy Whitton

The BC Aquasonics National Stream Synchronized Swimming teams headed to Montreal on March 9 to compete at Synchro Canada’s National Qualifier Championships at the Claude Robillard Sport Centre, March 12-16.

Thirty-two Aquasonics athletes from the Lower Mainland will compete against over 600 athletes from across Canada. Representing Abbotsford is Alanna Stobbe, Aldergrove is Amy Whitton, Chilliwack is Olivia Strickland, Langley is Emilie Sadler and Lindsey Solmes and Maple Ridge is Manuela Silva.

“The 2014 BC Aquasonics are an incredibly talented group of athletes and coaches,” says Head Coach Susan Kemper. “We believe that the routines we have developed for 2014 are a step above our competition and really showcase our BC talent. We are ready to find out.”

The National Qualifier is the first national competition of 2014 for Canadian synchronized swimming and it is the largest competition of the year.

Live streaming of all events and up to date results are available via Synchro Canada’s website at synchro.ca
