Each year there is an Inter District competition, for which synchronised swimmers from the region join forces to compete against the West and North districts. In 2017 this competition was held on 25 March.
The East had a very successful start to the synchro year, winning both overall trophies in the Inter District competition at the RCP on Saturday.
Sara won the Skill 1/2 figures with Cale second. Niamh won the Skill 3 figures. The Skill 1/2 duet of Cale and Cara were a very close second, being only 0.27 behind the winners. There was a bit of drama when it was revealed that the East Skill 1/2 team scored exactly the same as the West team. However, following the rules of the competition, the East team were awarded the win as they had the higher technical merit mark.
Overall the East Skill 1/2 team were awarded the Shell Oil trophy and the 3/4/5 team were awarded the Elizabeth Hamilton trophy.
Congratulations to all who were involved with the championships and a great big thanks to all the volunteers on the day.
