Fall Update

Hi Everyone!

Hope you all had a great summer! We are so excited to start up again in the Fall. The team will work harder than ever and set higher goals to be ready to take on this meet season including our hosting of the Eastern College Athletic Conference Championships this year! We are hoping to see some new faces on the team in the fall. Experienced or complete beginner, as a club team, BU Synchro takes anyone who is interested in trying out our team! It’s a lot of fun, great exercise, and a great way to make new friends whether you’re new to BU or not.

You can come meet us on the sidewalk in front of FitRec on Labor Day Monday September 2nd from Noon-3pm. Or you can feel free to contact me or our team captain for this year, Jen, at jenwilcz@bu.edu. We love questions!
Hope to see you in September!

Sincerely,
Elissa

Team Secretary 2013-2014

Welcome Back!

We hope everyone had a beautiful, healthy summer filled with lots of sun and fun times. The team is stoked to get back in the water and kick some butt this synchro season. We are excited to work harder than before and tackle new goals. But even more than that, we can’t wait to meet our new swimmers!

Whether you have synchro experience or not, we have a spot for you on our team! Every year we gain members with and without knowledge of the sport. Synchro is a great learning experience to new and old swimmers, as well as a sure way to get to the gym regularly! We’re so excited to expand the synchro family this year. We’ve already heard from a few eager terriers, so keep the questions coming!

See you in the Bean!

Goodbye

We ended our year with a banquet, one final fundraiser, and a team dinner in the North End. Now, finals are ending and BU is looking forward to Commencement, where the seniors from all BU’s colleges and schools gather together for graduation. This year, we had to say goodbye to three fabulous seniors. One of them will be a coach next year but the rest are looking forward to go wherever life takes them next. We wish them the best of luck.

With that, I turn over the website editing and blogging to our Secretary for 2012-2013, Amanda Kelleher. It’s been a lot of fun, but I know that Amanda will keep you updated on the daily happenings of the team for this coming year.

Have a fabulous summer everyone!

Sincerely,
Marie Hoff

Pictures

Micaela Bedell came to practice before our show and took some pictures of us! She did a fabulous job and YOU can see OUR photos by clicking on the “Pictures” tab above and then going to the “2011-2012 Season” link. Her photos are at the end– they are the ones with us in red swim suits. Feel free though to look through them all, though!

Global Day of Service

It is really important for us to do community service. Last semester, we donated toys for our club sport’s Toys for Tots drive. Today, two of us participated in our Community Service Center’s Global Day of Service event. We helped rake leaves at a community park near our campus. The students from Boston University filled over 200 bags! Look at the pictures– click “Pictures” above and then choose “2011-2012 Season.”
