Maple Ridge synchronized swimmer Faith Phillips won gold with her team at provincials this past weekend.
BC Aquasonics had a powerhouse performance at the National Stream BC Provincial Synchronized Swimming Championships in Surrey.
The senior national combo team, including Phillips, scored 78.030, six points higher than rivals Vancouver Pacific Wave.
“I am extremely proud of all of our athletes,” said head coach Susan Kemper.
“Not only did our athletes win gold in their respective events, their outstanding scores are a reflection of their ability, conditioning, training, and readiness to compete. We have positioned our teams for medal contention at the National Qualifier in Calgary in March.”
The 13-15 BCAQ national stream team, coached by Tanya Magee was second after Saturday’s figures event with a combined team score of 64.116.
However, both their technical and artistic scores in Sunday’s routine vaulted them into first place with a total score of 68.210, leading second place Vancouver Pacific Wave by 1.5 points.
