STAMFORD, Conn. -- Girls from Stamford helped the Skyliners synchronized skating team win four gold medals and one bronze medal last week in the national championships in Rockford, Ill.
The Skyliners won titles in the Junior, Novice, Intermediate and Juvenile Divisions. The Senior Division team finished third.
"“This season has been truly exceptional, with all of our lines performing at the top of their game,” said Josh Babb, Skyliners Head Coach and Director of Synchronized Skating. “Earning four 2017 National titles and the Senior Bronze is a testament to how extremely hard working and determined our skaters and coaches have been.”
Stamford girls on the Skyliners teams are Giovanna Armetta, Christine Kao, Juliette Lipson, Isabela Malone, Olivia Marshall and Alexis Steger.
The Skyliners Novice team won its first national title. The Intermediate unit won its second straight title, and the Juvenile team won its fourth U.S. crown.
The Skyliners Junior will represent the United States at the World Junior Synchronized Skating Championships in Mississauga, Canada. That event begins on March 10.
The Senior team, which won a goal medal representing Team USA at the Zagreb Snowflakes Trophy in Croatia, earned bronze in a highly competitive field. It’s their third straight bronze at Nationals.
