The Skyliners went to the Colonial Classic in Lowell, Mass this weekend and came home with an impressive collection of medals against some of the best teams in the country.  These results only tell part of the story.
Pre-Juvenile started the competition right by winning their group on Friday night and earning the first gold medal of the competition.  The Junior competition was a featured event because it was also the Junior World Qualifier awarding the top two teams the right to represent the United States at the Junior World Challenge Cup (JWCC) in Goteborg, Sweden.  The junior girls gave a great performance of their Lady GaGa short program and earned 49.61 and were sitting in third place by 0.22 behind Team Braemar and the Lexettes. 
On Saturday, our Novice (50.66) and Intermediate (49.53) lines competed in difficult divisions and each finished fifth.  Then our Pre-Pre and Preliminary lines put on wonderful performances and showed that the organization has great skills and a long pipeline of talented skaters.  Each earned a gold medal. 
Saturday evening returned to the Juniors.  Our skaters stepped onto the biggest stage of the season and gave their best performance in the free skate. Their Black Swan enchanted the judges who awarded them 112.83, and a combined score of 162.44.  This moved the Skyliners into First, 1.2 points ahead of Team Braemar, who will join them in Sweden.  The night wasn't over for the Skyliners as the Senior line skated their short program, earning 48.03, and second place. 
Those who stayed for great skating on Sunday saw the Juvenile line's terrific performance as they were awarded the Silver medal.  Senior finished out the competition with their long program that many will remember as a lesson on what to do "if the lights go out in the middle of your performance."  After stopping just before their lifts, the Skyliners had a 20 minute delay and finished their program earning an impressive 88.80 for a total of 136.83 and second place.
Junior - Won the Junior World Qualifier and will go to the JWCC as USA1
Pre-Preliminary - Gold
Preliminary - Gold
Pre-Juvie - Gold
Juvenile - Silver
Senior - Silver
Intermediate - Fifth
Novice - Fifth
Congratulations to all the skaters.  Thank you to the Coaches and our parent volunteers for a great weekend.
