Orcas outstanding

Chilliwack’s YMCA Orcas Synchro Club earned four podium placings at a provincial meet in Nanaimo last weekend.

Going against a field of 56 competitors, Emily Neill captured silver in the 13 to 15 year old solo event.

She added bronze in the figure event.

Olivia Strickland and Alanna Stobbe seized silver in the 13 to 15  year old duet event. Having to swim up an age group to be paired with Stobbe, 10-year-old Strickland was able to post an outstanding 15th place in the figures, with Stobbe close behind in 19th.

Neill, Stobbe and Strickland competed together in the trio  event, taking bronze with a solid performance.
