Ravensong Waterdancers sparkle in spring show

Parksville Qualicum Beach synchronized swimming team heads to provincials

The Ravensong Waterdancers synchronized swimming club wrapped up its 20th season with its annual free thank-you to family, friends and supporters.

The 2017 Spring Water Show April 30 at Ravensong Aquatic Centre also served as a final tune-up for the club’s two competitive teams, who will compete this weekend in the B.C. provincial synchronized swimming championships, May 12-14 in Kamloops.

The annual spring show featured performances by the club’s 10-under competitive team and the age 13-15 competitive team, both of which will compete in Kamloops.

It also featured routines from several recreational groups and duets, including a growing masters team of adult women.

Between routines, Waterdancers coaches handed out ribbons and medals won by the swimmers in recent regional championship meet and in team routine competitions.

Debbie Provencher, a masters athlete who will compete in the World Masters competition in Hungary in August, was given a special presentation for her work adjudicating the athletes.
