Aldergrove skaters bring home four medals

Fifty skaters and parents from the Aldergrove Skating Club competed in the Mountain Regional Synchronized Championships recently.

Fifty skaters and parents from the Aldergrove Skating Club travelled by bus to Lethbridge, Alberta for the Mountain Regional Synchronized Championships recently.

After 12 hours on a bus the teams attend practice ice on the Friday and then competed both Saturday and Sunday.

The Adult 3 Ice Silhouette, skating to Serena Ryders song Stompa, had two flawless performances, bringing home the Gold medal.

The Beginner 1 Snowflakes team skated strong to their theme of Ghosts, to also bring home a Gold medal.

Juvenile Ice Angels in a large category skated beautifully on the Saturday to achieve 1st place and then came back again on Sunday to give an even stronger performance, holding on to first and bring home a Gold medal.

Intermediate Black Ice skating in a qualifying event to carry on to Nationals, being held in Burnaby on Feb 20-22, had an exciting skate to Spice Girls. They fought hard and came home with the Bronze medal.

Training will be intense in the next few weeks as they prepare for the National event. For many this is their first time at this event.

The club is also busy preparing for their annual Pop Concert which will be on March 7 at the Aldergrove Arena.
