January 2016 News

Big Start at Regionals!

The BC Aquasonics had a great start to the 2015-2016 competition season in December. In the National Stream Regional Championships events, both our Junior and 13-15 National Stream teams came first. Grace Macdonald also came first in the 13-15 solo event, Emily Yang 2nd in Junior Solo, and Cameron Blades/Nancy Zhang 2nd in Junior Duet. Congratulations!

This was also a figures training meet for our provincial stream teams. BC Aquasonics were first in every event and all of our athletes finished in the Top 10! Nice job everyone.

Many thanks to all of the parents who volunteered and provided the amazing food in the hospitality room. BC Aquasonics went above and beyond. Thank you!

We will need all BCAQ families who have athletes competing at this meet to help with at least 1 volunteer shift each and provide a dish/food item for the Officials Room.
