Easterns 2015 Wrap Up

Winter temps in Boston have nothing on the weather in Lake Placid, NY! We recently traveled to Lake Placid to compete at the 2015 Eastern Section Synchronized Skating Championships where the temperature was a high of 1 degree on the day of our arrival, but the cold didn’t stop us! We enjoyed every moment of our trip, touring the Olympic Museum, dog-sledding, experiencing the top of the Olympic Ski Jump, walking around town, and of course, skating.

We had two excellent practices prior to our competition. Unofficial practice took place on Friday night, and we had a strong 45 minutes on the ice, working hard and staying focused the entire time. Our 12-minute official practice took place on Saturday morning, where we were able to practice at the competition venue to get a feel for our skates on the new ice and where the competition officials and judges could watch our routine before the start of the competition.

We skate 4th out of 9 Collegiate level teams in our division at competition time. We had an excellent skate and are incredibly proud of our performance! Our technical element score was 18.81 and our program component score was 28.42, giving us a total segment score of 47.23, landing us in 8th place overall.

We will be competing at the New England Challenge Cup in Marlboro, MA on February 7th.
