LONDON, Ont. – McGill won five of seven events but finished second of 13 teams overall at the Canadian University Synchronized Swim League championship, Sunday.

UPEI, which joined the league this year, surprised the synchro community by capturing the Gerry Dubrule Trophy as overall champion. They finished with 44 points, one more than McGill and four ahead of third-place Calgary, at the two-day competition, held on the Western University campus.

McGill, which had won the Dubrule Trophy for the previous eight years, did claim the John Drake Trophy for winning the senior team routine. The winning squad, known as the White team, scored 70.200 points, to finish atop the podium, along with second-place Calgary (69.683) and third-place UPEI (68.883).

It was a banner day for McGill’s newcomers, which captured the novice team routine with 56.500 points, the novice solo routine (Lorraine-Noelle Pellicone of Montreal) and the novice duet routine, featuring Paula Kent of Carman, Man., and Eira Nesbitt-Wood of Toronto.

McGill also won the free combination routine with 64.883 points, finishing ahead of Trent (60.233).

It was a somewhat disappointing day for McGill in the other senior categories. Hannah Ungar, a sophomore from Vancouver, B.C., finished fifth in the solo routine, while the tandem of Toronto native Carrie Mouck and Danielle Ten Vaanholt of Vancouver was sixth in the duet routine.

The team will now focus on the upcoming 53rd annual McGill Synchro Water Show, their final event of the season, which is scheduled for a 7 p.m. start on Valentine’s Day at Memorial Pool inside the Sir Arthur Currie gymnasium.
