2016 Midwestern & Pacific Coast Synchro Skating Championships
Portland, Oregon was host to the 2016 Midwestern and Pacific Coast Synchronized Skating Sectional Championships; January 27-31. Four St. Louis Synergy teams participated in the events; Preliminary, Pre-Juvenile, Juvenile and Novice. The girls skated their hearts out and made St Louis proud!
Novice team placed 5th and won a spot to compete at Nationals next month in Kalamazoo, WI. Juvenile took 9th, Pre juvenile placed 6th and Preliminary received 8th--all teams skated great!
In addition to an awesome week of skating, all the girls were able to enjoy local sights including Multnomah Falls--an amazing waterfall, ride a tram and even get treats at a yummy donut shop!
Portland Competition & Fun
Maybe even more awesome than the skating and sights was the way all the girls conducted themselves during the trip. The girls represented St Louis and the Synergy club showcasing great manners, considerate conduct and superb sportsmanship. Judges and local businesses commented on the great behavior and maturity---way to go girls, you make us all proud!
Pep Rally Fun
PEP RALLY PUMPED UP SKATERS!
From the "dance off" to the conga line, Synergy skaters had as much fun off the ice as on at the Pep Rally before Mids. Of course, they dazzled their public first with an all-team exhibition skate. As part of Synergy's on-going commitment to service, the girls collected toilet paper for "Lydia's House," a St. Louis women's shelter. Preliminary won the competition, with 1844 rolls of toilet paper, for which they received a special Valentine's party. Keep up the great work!
