The North Ayrshire Synchro squad are putting in final preparations for the highlight of their season at the Scottish Nationals.
 
Synchro 3This year the club is putting forward our biggest entry yet with five swimmers qualifying to compete at Drumchapel - Ailidh Brobyn, Erin Patten, Grace Thom and Danielle and Kerry Ternent.
 
For the under 12s three of them will be competing figures, two in solos, and one in duet.
 
We have two swimmers in the 13-15 year-old figures and one in 19 and under duet.
 
Good luck to them all.
 
They’ve had a very busy month of competitions, starting with the Grade day at Bo’ness in May.
 
Danielle became the club’s first swimmer to achieve Grade 4, while sister, Kerry, passed her Grade 3 and Grace Thom reached Grade 2.
 
Syncho 2At the start of this month we took 14 swimmers to the Synchro for all competition at Carnagie Leisure Centre.
 
For many of them it was their first experience of a synchro competition for many of them and they were a credit to our club.

11th Emma Plimbley

We can’t finish this round-up without a few words for the fabulous achievement of Grace’s mum, Shonah, who raised a total of £1,085.55 for the club running the London Marathon. £283 of that was collected by the girls through their sponsored swims.
 
A brilliant effort all round!
