Aldergrove Synchronized Skaters with their medals.

Three Golds and a Silver

Aldergrove Synchronized Skating teams brought home three golds and one silver medal from the BC/YT Synchronized Skating Championships held at the South Surrey arena on Jan. 15.

The youngest team, the Beginner 1 team, had two fun performances, skating to a theme of dogs and the music of “How much is that doggie in the window?” Elvis Presley’s “Hound Dog” and “Who let the dogs out?” They were excited to receive a Gold medal.

The Juvenile team, Ice Angels, got the crowd involved as they skated to a mix of baseball themed songs. In a field of three teams from the lower mainland and Washington state, they skated a clean first performance, ending in first place and maintained that placing after another clean skate, bringing home the gold medal.

Black Ice, Aldergrove’s Pre-Novice team, skated to a theme of “Bad to the Bone.” With a little bit of “born to be wild” attitude they gave a thrilling fast-paced performance to put them in first place and were the last team of the day to skate, giving another exhilarating showing, winning them the Gold medal. Five teams from Washington state, Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland travelled to this event.

The Ice Silhouette, an Adult level 3 team, skated an awe-inspiring routine to the theme of Breast Cancer. They were dressed in black with the breast cancer pink ribbon adorning the backs of their dresses. With straight lines and round circles they proudly skated to the music of Celine Dion and Beyonce breast cancer theme music and were awarded the silver medal, missing the gold by .22 marks.

All four teams will be travelling to Penticton on Jan. 28 for the Mountain Synchronized Skating Championships that will include teams from B.C., Yukon Territories, Alberta and Nunavat.
