It was a good day for City of Preston Aquatics in the Lancashire County Synchronised Swimming Championships on Sunday with medals being won across several categories and age groups. The day commenced with a novice figures competition and saw CoPA produce a hat-trick of podium results: Nema (gold), Rachel (silver) and Daisy Royle (bronze).
In the solo events, Daisy Rushton claimed a gold for CoPA in the 13-15 age group whilst Elizabeth followed up with a silver in the 12 & under age group. 2nd and third places also went to Tilly (silver) and Rhea (bronze) for their routines in the 15 & over category.
Imogen and Nema took a silver in the 12 & under duets, whilst Evie and Isabel G. did the same in the 13-15 duets. Another hat-trick of results for CoPA came in the 15 & over duet (although CoPA were the only club entering teams in this event!). The final standings were: Tilly & Rhea (gold), Izzy & Leah (silver) and Olivia H. & Ana (bronze).
Finally, in the combination team events, CoPA took the top spot with their ‘Fairground Freaks‘ team (Daisy Rushton, Tilly, Leah, Rhea, Izzy, and Olivia M.), (gold), with the ‘Little Monsters‘ (Elizabeth, Nema, Rachel, Abby, Lola, Jorja, Chloe, Daisy Royle, Sofia and Immy) also finishing a credible 4th.
Congratulations to all swimmers who took part, and thanks also to our friends from City of Salford, Kendal and Blackburn Synchronised Swimming Clubs for taking part and making the event a success. Full results can be found here.
