Mermaids showcase talents at water show


Hannah Whitman and Tracy Irwin performed during the Mermaids' water show.

The Estevan Mermaids synchronized swim club capped their season April 26 by hosting their annual water show at the RM of Estevan Aquatic Centre.

Duets, solos and group routines were all part of the event. Duets came courtesy of Hannah Whitman and Tracy Irwin, Eden Palmer and Alyssa Wieting, and Cynthia Goudy and Shannon Wanner.

Soloists were Haley Copeland, Brenna Lawrence, Anna Lawrence, Nyla Dyck, Hannah Mantei, Courtney Reetz, Brooke Krueger, Kelsey Potoma and Shannon Wanner.

The 10-and-under recreation team, the 11 and 12 provincial stream squad, and the 13 to 15 provincial stream entry provided the group performances.

The Mini Mermaids program, which is for younger swimmers, also had a couple of routines.

The water show concluded with a special performance by provincial high performance team member Mackenzie Dahl; scholarship presentations to Grade 12 swimmers; and a group performance by all the swimmers.

Mermaids assistant coach Gisele Poirier, who was the water show emcee, noted that this year's theme was Make it Count 24/7.

"This year the Estevan Mermaids synchronized swim club wanted to instill in the athletes to live life to the fullest," said Poirier. "Wherever the athletes are, or whatever the athletes do, whether it be at school, at home or in the community, we expect them to do things to the best of their ability.

"The main message we were trying to get across was to not just float through life, but to make it count."

Many people in attendance at the water show brought donations to the food bank, and Poirier said that synchronized swim clubs across the province have emphasized support for food banks this year.
