STAMFORD, Conn. -- The Skyliners Synchronized Skating Team kicked off its 15th year bringing home eight medals.
The Skyliners performed at their first competitions of the season, and every single line medaled – resulting in a total of six gold medals, one silver and one bronze.
The junior and senior lines both traveled to Anaheim, Calif. to perform both their short and free skate programs at the Anaheim ICE Synchronized Team Championships at The Rinks Anaheim Ice. The junior line won the gold medal in its division, and the senior line won the silver.
This past weekend, six Skyliners lines traveled to Marlborough, Mass for the Boston Synchronized Skating Classic. Facing some of the strongest competitors in the Eastern division, the beginner, preliminary, pre-juvenile, juvenile and intermediate lines all earned gold medals and the novice line earned a bronze.
The team's skaters live in Stamford and surrounding towns in Fairfield County.
"I am so proud of how all of our teams performed at the Boston Classic.” said Sarah LeBlanc Blosat, the Skyliners' director of non-qualifying lines. “We’ve been practicing throughout the summer and fall to prepare our programs for competition. It was a wonderful way to start the season and build momentum for the competitions ahead."
