Orcas close out synchronized swim season in style

Comox Valley athletes perform well at provincial championships in Victoria

The provincial stream competitive team from the Comox Valley Orcas Synchronized Swim Club (CV Orcas) attended the recent Jean Peters Provincial Championships.

Named after the CV Orcas current head coach Leona Hamm, the annual Jean Peters Provincial Swim Meet is the final provincial swim event of the year, and this year it was held May 24-25 at the Saanich Commonwealth Pool in Victoria.

The event was very well attended with synchronized swim clubs from all over B.C. as well as out-of-province clubs from Alberta (one) and Oregon (two). While all swimmers competed against each other, the out-of-province teams were placed in a separate out-of-province category for final results.

In the Level 2,  13-and-over Team Finals championship the Orcas placed third overall with a score of 50.776.

In the Level 2, 13-and-over Duet Finals championship, Beth Whitaker and Alanna Stephens placed fourth with a 51.496, Grace Rempel and Jade Whitaker placed sixth with a 49.475.

In the Level 2, 13-and-over Figures category, Alanna Stephens placed 11th with a 52.918, Beth Whitaker placed 17th with a 51.002, Jade Whitaker placed 24th with a 49.917, Deziraye Carey placed 27th with a 49.082 and Grace Rempel placed 33rd with a 46.252.

This has been a great year of swimming for the CV Orcas and everyone is looking forward to the 2013-2014 swim season. For information about our synchronized swim programs for swimmers aged six to adult e-mail the CV Orcas at cvorcas@gmail.com.
