Sudbury Synchronized Swim Club member Dana Yawney placed 2nd in routines and 3rd overall in the 16-20 Solo Event at the 2012 Ontario
Open Age Group Synchronized Swimming Championships, leading a solid performance from the local crew in Etobicoke.
Yawney also combined with her duet partner, Emmah Cacciotti, securing fourth place ribbons in the 16-20 Duet competition. The Sudbury club was
able to enter teams in the 10 and under, 11-12 and 16-20 age groupings, with Lyanne Paquette participating in the 26-20 Solo routine while
Kamryn Butler and Mya Duguay took part in the 11-12 Duet finals.
"I am extremely proud of each and every swimmer and their coaches who prepared them so well throughout the year," said head coach and former club
swimmer Lindsay Wandziak. "Both the Solos and Duets had exceptional placements, the result of outstanding swims."
"All 21 athletes who competed did give 100% - that's what we strive for with Sudbury Synchro, to teach the girls to always try their very best," Wandziak
