Three local skaters traveled to Ann Arbor, Michigan last week, competing at the 21st annual Porter Classic, and earned Gold medals with their synchro teammates.
Rhianna Gold (Horace Greeley freshman), Lauren Sallay (John F. Kennedy Catholic HS) and Emmy Sloan (Horace Greeley freshman) all skate for Skyliners.
Gold and Sallay are on the Intermediate line, and Sloan is on the novice line. It was a historic weekend for Skyliners, since all four lines competing at the Porter Classic won medals, including three gold.
In the same weekend, younger Chappaqua skaters Caroline Caruso (beginner line), Devisi Goel (pre-juvenile line) and Sophia Huang (preliminary line) also all earned gold medals with their respective Skyliners teams at the Terry Conners Open in Stamford, CT.
“We are enjoying a stellar season so far,” said Director of Synchronized Skating and Head Coach Josh Babb. “Our most important events occur in early 2017 – Easterns, Nationals and Internationals. The competition will continue to get tougher, and the skaters know there’s hard work ahead. We welcome the challenge.”
