matched synchro team in the competition. They just missed one dive
slightly in the 3rd round, but overall they had a very solid
performance." said Boardworks coach and Team Canada coach Lisa Boog.

showing at the Junior Pan Am Championships with Canada bringing home a
total of 27 medals, 5 gold, 11 silver & 11 bronze).
