Congratulations to all our skaters on some great performances. Symmetry won gold in Adult II and Insync won silver in Adult III. The Princelles were single entries in Novice but had two great skates, and got valuable feedback as they prepare for Nationals. The Lollipops placed 5th in Beginner II, the Popstars won bronze in Elementary, and the Princettes were 5th in Juvenile. The teams will now look forward to the Provincial Championships in March.
