The Northern Novas made a splash at the B.C. Interior Meet for Synchronized Swimming in Kelowna on Saturday.
Three members of Yukon’s synchronized swim team won four medals in their first time competing at the regional competition that saw about 48 swimmers in action.
Jamie Duke and Katelyn Vowk swam to gold in the duet competition.
“They swam excellent,” said Northern Novas head coach Aura-Lea Harper. “They got lots of good comments from the judges and that’s what we look for, obviously. They just had a really good swim – that’s all I can really say about them.”
Duke also placed second in the figures competition, while Vowk claimed third and teammate Samantha Steel fourth.
Steel also placed second in the solo competition.
“She definitely swam good,” said Harper. “This is her first year doing the solo, so it was a little bit different for her. She did a great job for her first time doing one.”
All three Northern Novas are current Yukon champions.
The Northern Novas will be hosting their annual Water Show at the Canada Games Centre’s Lion’s Aquatic Centre on Saturday at 6 p.m.
