Aldergrove Skating Club’s Synchronized skating team

Aldergrove teams skate to the top

Novice Ice Angels qualified to attend the National Synchronized Skating Championships in Waterloo, Ontario, Feb. 19-21.

Aldergrove Skating Club’s Synchronized skating teams have had great successes in recent competitions.

Four of the Aldergrove Synchronized skating teams came home with medals in all colours.

The Beginners Snowflakes team skated two great routines and at this level were awarded a participation medal.

The Elementary Icicles team fought hard to do two exciting western routines, capturing the crowd and placing first for a well deserved Gold medal.

The Pre-Novice team skated to a selection of music from the movie Pitch Perfect, having two fun skates and receiving the Silver medal of a field of five teams.

Aldergrove Skating Club’s Synchronized skating team, the Novice Ice Angels have qualified to go to the National Championships this month after winning bronze at the Mountain Regional Synchronized Skating Championships in Edmonton this past week.

The Novice Ice Angels had a great first skate to take a solid third place finish. The second skate had a few small glitches, but the team was able to hold onto their third place finish for a Bronze medal and have now qualified to attend the National Synchronized Skating Championships in Waterloo, Ontario, Feb. 19-21.

The team is Hannah Lord, Courtney Watson, Emily Wildy, Lexus Lomas, Haleigha Bull, Cora-Lee Hagel, Alex Lord, Tarra Lomas, Rachel Lagasse, Kirsty O’Brien, Tia Flello, Ogechi Anumba and Ashley Borglund.

The Novice team will be doing a lot of fundraising in the next couple of weeks for this trip and are looking for any sponsors or donations to help with their travels to Ontario.
