On October 12, the BUFSC and the Northeastern University Figure Skating Club traveled 14 hours to Liberty University to kick off the 2012-2013 collegiate skating season. After a slew of great skates by new and veteran members on Saturday and Sunday, the BUFSC notched a 3rd place finish, 5 points shy of the University of Delaware and 19 points out from Dartmouth College. A special thanks to NUFSC for some intercollegiate bonding on the bus ride there and back as well as Liberty University for a very well run competition. We offer our hearty congratulations to all the teams that participated as we look forward to the next competition hosted by the University of Delaware in March of 2013.
