Team titles swept by Aquasonics

Local team unbeatable at Lower Mainland Regional in Richmond

The BC Aquasonics won three team titles at last weekend’s Lower Mainland Regional Synchronized Swimming Championships (Provincial Stream) at Watermania in Richmond.

The Surrey-based club placed first in the 10-and-under, 11-12 and 13-15 age group events.

Individually, the Aquasonics also dominated Saturday’s figures competition. Kayla Drew of Chilliwack (10 & Under), Annie Wang of Coquitlam (11-12), Mikayla Papillo of Coquitlam (13-15) and Erin Nichols of Surrey (16-18) each placed first in their respective figures events, with Nichols surpassing her nearest competitor by almost five full points. Sister Caitlyn Nichols won the 13-15 solo event on Sunday.

The 13-15 team was comprised of Surrey athletes Madisen Bonthoux-Roberts, Sirona Lyon, Caitlyn Nichols, and Erin Nichols.

Preet Lehal of Surrey was a member of the 11-12 team.

The 10-and-under team members included Surrey athletes Nysa Agarwal, Annise Alkema, and Simone Liu.
