The Hamden Heronettes Intermediate team recently attended the East Zone Invitational synchronized swimming meet held March 18 & 19 in Norton, Massachusetts, where they competed against twelve other clubs from across the Northeast. For many on the team, this was their first competition, and all had impressive performances. Some Heronettes landed in the top 3 in their categories: Laney Sherry (Madison) won a bronze medal for her 11/12 solo; Collette Lynch (Hamden) won bronze for her 13 & over solo; and Carly Chervenak (Orange) won a silver medal for her 13 & over solo. Collette also won bronze for 13 & over figures, a compulsory event. “The girls were very excited to attend this first competition after watching our elite team perform so well at the East Zone Championships a few weeks ago”, said head coach Anna Montgomery. “They feel proud of how well they represented themselves and the Heronettes against other clubs. We are very proud as well, and are looking forward to the rest of the competitive season. “The Heronettes will present their 2017 competitive routines at their annual Watershow at 7 p.m. June 9 & 10 at the Hamden High School.
