Aquasonics win nationals

Aldergrove’s Amy Whitton and the BC Aquasonics Senior Team won the Canadian Open Synchronized Swimming Championships

Aldergrove’s Amy Whitton and the BC Aquasonics Senior Team won the Canadian Open Synchronized Swimming Championships in Saskatoon.

Aldergrove’s Amy Whitton and the BC Aquasonics Senior Team won the Canadian Open Synchronized Swimming Championships in Saskatoon, beating their nearest competitor by a full 2.6 points.

The Aquasonics Senior Team scored 74.5667 to win gold with their routine “Atlantis,” ahead of silver medalists Synchro Elite de Quebec, and Les Vestales who placed third.

“We just won the National Championships by a landslide,” says proud Aquasonics head coach Susan Kemper. “In this sport, it can be just hundredths of a point that separate competitors. Not today. This team showed up for work and brought home gold.”

The BC Aquasonics Senior Team members include Mackenzy Higgins (White Rock), Alexia Iten (Anmore), Emilie Sadler (Langley), Anna Seiler (Surrey), Madyson Stickley (Surrey), Alanna Stobbe (Abbotsford), Amy Whitton (Aldergrove), and Erin Williams (Surrey).

Earlier that week, Olivia Zawadiuk of Coquitlam won bronze in the Senior Technical Solo event and fifth place in Senior Free Solo. The Aquasonics Junior Team also had a Top 10 finish, placing ninth in the Junior Free Event.
