The Auroras cast a spell on judges at the Mabel Moran Regional Island Interior and Lower Mainland Meet over the weekend in Richmond, B.C.
The squad from the Northern Novas, Yukon’s synchronized swim club, won gold in the recreational Star 3-4 division.
“They were put together in January so it was kind of a late start, but they all seemed to work really well together,” said Northern Novas coach Aura-lea Harper, of the team which includes Ella Laliberty, Chrystal Goulah, Kinley Battersby, Mia Houde, and Mia Maguire.
“It looks like they had a good time, which is most important.”
The Northern Novas sent 11 swimmers to the meet, which was the team’s first meet of the season outside of Yukon.
The pre-competitive team of Camron Maguire, Helene Maguire, Taylor Jobin, Amelia Frey and Kate Josie, took second in the provincial stream 11-12 category.
Jobin produced a second place finish in the solo category for the 13-15 age group. Teammate Teera Walsh took third in the 16-18 age group.
Northern Novas swimmers also posted six top-10 finishes in the figures competitions.
Walsh placed fourth, Josie sixth, Jobin seventh, Frey seventh, Camron eighth and Helene ninth for their respective divisions.
