It was a successful day for CoPA on Sunday at the 7th Lancashire County Water Polo & Swimming Association Synchronised Swimming Championships at Palatine pool with several of our swimmers medalling. Gracie placed first to take gold in the novice figures competition and Daisy also took gold in the 12 & under solo. Rhea gained a gold for her solo in the 13, 14 & 15 age group category, with Leah also taking silver. In the 12 & under duets it was another CoPA gold for Daisy and Olivia whilst Leah and Izzy also grabbed a gold for their 13, 14 & 15 age group duet. In the 15 & over duets, Prisha and Victoria took bronze, and in the combination free teams, CoPA finished 2nd to take silver against strong competition from four Salford teams. Well done to all!
Full results can be found here. Photos and videos from the event can be found here.
Please take note that there will be no training on 29th September as Hutton pool will be closed.
City of Preston Aquatics’ scheduled training session on Monday evening, 7th September saw a special visit from Mr Guy Topping, Managing Director of Barton Grange Garden Centre as he demonstrated his support for City of Preston Aquatics by delivering a new music centre. Mr Topping spent time watching CoPA swimmers train and was fully apprised of goings on by coaches Alex and Fiona. City of Preston Aquatics would like to extend their grateful thanks to Mr Topping for this most generous donation which is sure to serve the club well for many years to come.
An outstanding result for CoPA swimmer Daisy as she finished 2nd to take silver in figures at the first ever synchro Beacon Games in Bristol this weekend. The competition is open to swimmers from the regional beacon programmes as well as the England Development Squad. Five England Development Squad members competed in the games and Daisy finished ahead of three of those to place fourth overall. With the EDS members excluded for beacon results, Daisy ranked 2nd.
A brilliant result well deserved for Daisy, and another proud result for CoPA.
It was another successful day for City of Preston Aquatics at the Warwickshire competition in Rugby on 4th July with several medals being brought home across all events:
- the 12 and under team (Daisy, Olivia, Natasha, Gracie, Lily and Millie) came second to take silver,
- the 13/14/15 team (Sophie, Isobel, Leah, Anna, Gabriel and Willow) took silver as well,
- the CoPA senior team (Fiona, Shannon, Megan, Rhea, Lydia and Tilly) also finished second to gain silver medals,
- Daisy reached first place to grab a gold medal in her figures and also gained a bronze for her solo routine which takes into account her earlier figures score,
- Shannon came second in figures and also in her solo to net her two silver medals.
An amazing effort from CoPA suitably rewarded. Well done to all.
CoPA swimmers Rhea and Tilly took their next skill levels at Manchester Aquatics Centre today and we are very pleased to announce that Rhea passed Skill 5 and Tilly passed Skill 4. Well done to both!
