This weekend, Miami University Varsity Skating Teams ended their season with a bang. Friday night, the junior team put out one our best long program performances of the season. We went into the long program knowing that we had nothing to lose and were prepared to give it everything we had. We took our last stroll through Paris full of energy and had a clean skate earning a long program total of 65.86 and an overall score of 100.59 and a seventh place finish.
After finishing the junior event, our senior team rocked their blue suede shoes in the short program event earning a total of 57.98.
Saturday, collegiate and senior took to the ice for their final competition of the season. For some members of the team, it would be the last time they would be competing as Redhawks. Both teams skated beautifully, coach Carla DeGirolamo jumping up and down and smiling proudly on the sidelines after each performance. Collegiate captured their eighth consecutive national title, tying the record currently held by Michelle Kwan. Not only did Miami capture the collegiate gold title, but the senior team took home the bronze as well as the PSA Performance of the Year award.
It was a great weekend for all of the Miami teams and we are all heading home proud of our performances. We have all come a long way from the beginning of our season way back in September. We have all grown stronger and not only improved as a team, but we have all improved our individual selves. We’re all looking forward to returning to school after spring break to continue training as well as preparing for Goggin’s annual ice show on April 20th and 21st. Great job Hawks!
Love and Honor,
