The Aldergrove Skating Club had a great showing at the most recent synchronized skating competition

The Aldergrove Skating Club had a great showing at the most recent synchronized skating competition held at the George Preston arena in Langley, January 31 to February 1.

The Adult 3 team skated their routine to One Republic’s Counting Stars, improving their score on the second skate to finish with the gold medal. This team will be travelling to Calgary in April to compete against teams from all over Canada at the nationals.

The Pre-Novice Black Ice team had two solid skates to a melody of songs by Pink, improving their second mark significantly to finish with a silver medal to add to the silver medal that they acquired at the BC/YK Synchronized Skating Championships in South Surrey on Jan. 3. Next competition is West Coast Challenge in Coquitlam on Feb. 21.

Ice Angels Juvenile team had a tough field to fight through, with eight teams in this category from B.C. and Alberta. They had a narrow lead after the first skate, placing third, right behind two very strong Alberta teams. After their second exciting skate to the Willie Wonka movie music, they improved their score to widen the gap and hold onto their standing, bringing home the bronze medal, adding to the Gold they skated to at BC/YK Championships. Next up, West Coast Challenge in Coquitlam on Feb. 21.

The new Elementary team, Icicles, have a fun routine to the music from the Lego movie and have come together, having a challenging first skate, placing third, and then coming back for a strong second skate finishing for the silver medal, to match the silver medal from the BC/YK Competition.

The youngest team from Aldergrove, the Snowflakes, have had a lot of fun with the music from the movie Rio. They were second after both skates this weekend, but once all points were tallied they came away with the bronze medal. These young girls have worked hard to learn all about synchronized skating and have improved so much over this season, including having a silver medal from the BC/YK Championships. They also will be attending the West Coast Challenge on Feb. 21.

The Aldergrove Skating Club is very proud of all the teams and wish them all luck at their future competitions.

The teams will also be preparing for the club’s annual Pop Concert on March 6.
