I’m almost a week behind on this post, but better late than never right! The Cincinnati YMCA Synchrogators are attending (were attending) the 2010 North Zone Synchronized Swimming Meet in Denver, CO from March 4-7. The North Zone is a 15 state region and approximately 200-250 synchronized swimmers in 13-15, 16/17, and 18/19 age groups.
Synchrogator parent, CJ Connor, sent in a field report from the meet:
Marth 4th, 2010
All is well in Denver. Everyone arrived safely on the 13/15 team. Except for a brief incident at the airport – we lost a coach for just a few minutes- everyone had a great trip. The hotel is nice and the girls all had a team dinner at IHOP last night.
Up early and off to solos at 7:30 this morning. The first Synchrogator 13/15 solo was the feisty Jekyll and Hyde solo, followed by the inspiring Josh Groban solo, and last but not least the Spiderman routine. All did a beautiful job as the pictures show (I hope). 16/19 solos followed with our single soloist performing her lovely Pride and Prejudice solo.
After lunch, duets for 13/15′s began with the dynamic KA duet, followed by the Calebra duet. Last to perform was the exciting piano duet. Everyone also got a critique from Charlotte (sorry, don’t know her last name), a national coach.
The girls are returning from the pool anytime now, the coaches made them stay after competition for some additional pool time. Talk about grumpy girls! The mountain air takes a bit of getting used too, with many girls leaving the pool after their routines, very out of breath. Hopefully, this will pass.
