On May 11th, our youngest and newest synchronized swimmers competed at the NESSA Novice Invitational in Nashua, NH. It was the first competition for the majority of these swimmers. Team, duet, trio and all solos received Gold!! What an outstanding accomplishment for our girls! This is a testament to the high quality coaching on Optima’s team that starts at the very beginning.
