Today was the last grades test of the year and everyone was asked to come poolside.
Maria Ramos, Chair of the National Synchro Body, made a lovely speech about the recipient of the Mary Black Award and we soon cottoned onto who it was when Maria said this lady was a coach, judge and sewed beautiful costumes with sequins and had a daughter who also went on to become a coach - it was awarded to our very own Margaret Woolley; so well deserved Margaret and a heartfelt thank you from all of us for EVERYTHING you have done and continue to do for Rushmoor! :)
(Mary Black award is awarded to someone who is a member of an ASA club and has given outstanding service to English synchronised swimming.)
Rushmoor Dolphins, Seals, Sharks and Sea Lions teams competed in Crawley today, with all teams medalling. Well done girls. 🏆
