Synchro swimmers earn trip to National Championships

San Dieguito Synchro

Twenty members of San Dieguito Synchro are headed to the U.S. Age Group National Synchronized Swimming Championships in Federal Way, Wash., this June.  They earned their berth with an impressive showing at the Southern California Regional Championships held in La Mirada, Calif. on May 21.

Competing against the top synchronized swim clubs from Los Angeles, Orange County, Riverside and San Diego, San Dieguito Synchro’s 13- and 15-year-old and 11- and 12-year-old teams took silver medals.  The 16-17 team took silver too, as did the club’s 16-17 soloist, Cora Kohn of Carmel Valley.   This will be the third trip to the national championships for the local club, which was founded just 7 years ago and now has over 70 swimmers.

Head coach Barbara Strenk is excited for her teams.  “The girls set their sights on the national championships last fall and they’ve been working very hard all year toward that goal.  I am very proud of their accomplishments!” San Dieguito Synchro will hold synchro summer camp again this year.  Swimmers interested in trying this fun sport are invited to attend the club’s Introduction to Synchronized Swimming Camp, August 9-12, 2011, at Cathedral Catholic High School.   For  information about the camp and our synchro programs, visit www.sdsynchro.org or contact Barbara Strenk at (760) 633-3034.
