Synchro combo cup 2018

Synchro combo cup 2018, London Aquatics

The wonderful venue hosted this year’s Combo cup on 7th July 2018.  With 34 teams entered from around the country it was a busy and exciting National competition.

In the first event we had Stockport Metro’s 15 & Under team.  The team had been working hard on the routine for several months and recently had been practising their pre pool and competition warm up meaning that they were mentally well prepared for the challenge on the day.  Gabriella Jackson, Emma Walker, Annie Lu, Marisa Whitehurst, Siena Oxby, Alice Foster, Amelia Bamber, Floella Dixon and Evie Stringer swam a wonderful routine to music from toy story and scored well in artistic impression, execution and technical difficulty.  The girls(all under 12’s) placed 6th in the country out of 15 teams with an impressive swim.  Alice and Emma kept their nerve and showed magnificent lifts to the delight of the audience and combined with a great solo from Gabby, duet from Gabby & Annie and trio from Gabby, Annie & Emma the team scored 50.44.  For a couple of the girls, Flo & Evie it was their first ever competition but all smiled throughout!

Later in the day our 13-18 team competed with music from Great Gatsby.  Again, our girls were quite young in this age group but had worked hard in the run up to the competition and made us all proud on the day.  As part of the combination routine the girls showed team elements as well as solo and duet parts.  Eva Lawrence, Lia Harrison, Hannah Bates, Jasmine Jones, Evie Walker, Grace Lu, Chiara Pozzoni, Emily Jackson, Katherine Whelehan and Martha Stringer were all calm before their swim and performed a great routine with amazing lifts including partner lifts and a lovely solo from Evie followed by great duets from Jasmine & Evie and Hannah & Eva.  The girls also finished in 6th place out of 9 teams with a score of 55.00 scoring well in artistic impression, technical difficulty and execution.

Synchro Scottish Nationals Success 2015

What an amazing competition in Glasgow at Scottish Synchro Nationals over the weekend of 24th & 25th October!

Day 1 was the figure competition where we had 16 girls competing in total.  Evie Walker and Jasmine Jones travelled to Glasgow to improve their competition experience and for the first time competed in a National competition in 12 and under figures.  They placed 31st and 54th respectively out of 61 taking part.  In the 13/14/15 age group Stockport Metro did exceptionally well with Sophie Freeman ranking 1st out of 68 swimmers followed closely by the other team members, Eleanor Monks 7th, Ashley Pearson 9th, Victoria Hartley 11th, Kate Urwin 19th, Lucy Elliott 22nd, Rachael Mellor 26th and Hannah Bates 41st meaning that they were going into the team event the following day in 1st place.  Competing in Junior(15/16/17/18) figures were Megan Crew Meaney 11th, Olivia Monks 12th, Roisin Mooney 14th, Robyn Neale 18th, Niamh Hanly 23rd and Charlotte McDowell 29th.  Althouth our combined figure scores were the highest of the teams competing, due to only having 6 swimmers we unfortunately had to take a 1 point penalty moving us into the team event the following day in 2nd position.

We had 4 swimmers qualify to swim their solo's.  Sophie Freeman gave an amazing performance to Adele's Turning Tables, placing her 9.9 marks ahead when solo and figure scores were combined.  Ashley's performance to California Dreaming was beautiful and her graceful swim moved her up to 5th position with Eleanor placing 6th after her with a lovely swim.  Olivia then represented Stockport Metro in the Junior solo's and after a powerful performance moved up the rankings to 7th position.

The next event was duets where again we all qualified to swim.  Ashley Pearson and Sophie Freeman who always swim beautifully together really did give us a great show with their spanish themed duet and placed 1st, a clear 5 marks ahead.  They scored the highest on execution, artistic impression and difficulty.  Lucy Elliott and Victoria Hartley swam to Madonna and  showed us some great vogue moves gaining high artistic impression scores and placing in 5th position.  Kate Urwin and Rachael Mellor gave a lovely perfomance and placed 10th to J'ysuis jamais alle and La Valse d'Amelie.

Day 2 was the team events.  First up was our 13/14/15 team with Sophie, Ashley, Lucy, Victoria, Eleanor, Rachael, Kate and Hannah perfoming to music from around the world, showing different styles for each piece of music.  The team had a collective score of 58.7 for figures and 59.9 for routine which when combined meant they won by 1.7 marks, receiving their gold medals later that day!  The 15/16/17/18 team with Megan, Roisin, Niamh, Robyn, Olivia and Charlotte were determined to win and worked really hard on walk throughs and in the warm up.  Unfortunately they just missed out and placed 2nd but the swim and lifts featuring Megan were amazing.

A happy pack travelled home later on Sunday evening with their medals. 

Well done to all the girls and a special thanks to the team manager volunteers and to Nikki and Angela for officiating!
