NEW CANAAN, Conn. – The New Canaan YMCA Aquianas put on a good showing during the eSynchro National Synchronized Swimming championships in Federal Way, Wash. in June.

One of the New Canaan teams placed fourth, and the other placed 15th overall.

Members of the fourth-place team were Katherine Connolly, Alex Poteet, Emmanuella Tchakmajkian  and Eileen Flynn (alternate); Katie Chidley, Camilla Kline and Eliza Wetmore; and Katie Farrell and Lauren LaPorta. Porteet and Kline earned sixth place in the duet, with Chidley and Connolly coming in ninth, out of 44 pairs. Farrell, LaPorta and Wetmore came in seventh place.

The 12 and under team came in 10th out of 32 teams. Members were Cecilia Coleman, Siri Forfang and Kate Glatzhoffer; Olivia Li and Iris Moussset; Nina Robbe of Ridgefield and Eva Spangler. Li, Robbe and Spangler were eighth out of 38 trios.

Members of the 15th-place team were Claire Batchelor, Olivia Buckley, Audrey Millar, Rachel Panzano, Sophie Price, Katherine Reiter, Maddie Sturcke, Nicole Vanderlee and alternates Katie Lydon and Larsen Kline.

“The fact that all three of our teams placed in the top 15 shows the depth of our club’s bench,” head coach Jen Muzyk said. “This was a great way to cap off a strong season.”
